Thank you it worked.
How do you get TeavViewer to run automatically after a reboot so you can log in to it remotely. At the moment no matter what I do I need to locally log into KDE before TeavViewer starts
THANKS !!! You are the best !
TeamViewer does not work with Wayland – you need to run in Xsession. Fedora 25 will default to Wayland, cause it works better, so keep that in mind.
Thanks for the tip, yes I agree Fedora 25 comes with Wayland, but I tried TeamViewer 12 on my CentOS 7 and Fedora 23 worked perfectly..
I installed it over 11 version properly. thank you
That’s really great, in my case I removed earlier 11 version and installed fresh TeamViewer 12 to avoid any conflicts….
Thanks for the topic!
i have only one problem when i am closing the Teamviewer in Kali Linux it’s not working in the background even Skype the same any solution?
FYI, the teamviewer download has changed on their website. If you’re having errors like “teamviewer.deb is not a debian archive file” then you need to download it from the new location with:
sudo wget http://download.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_i386.deb
Thanks a ton for the tip, we will update this article in a day or two..
