Trying to install teamviewer on a waldorf system

I downloaded: … ux_x64.deb

Then tried to install it ...

sudo  dpkg   -i   ./teamviewer_linux_x64.deb

but ...

teamviewer7 depends on ia32-libs; however:
  Package ia32-libs is not installed.


So I tried to install ia32-libs ...

sudo  aptitude  install   ia32-libs

but ...

The following NEW packages will be installed:
The following partially installed packages will be configured:
0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 114 kB of archives. After unpacking 114 kB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ia32-libs : Depends: ia32-libs-i386 which is a virtual package.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Remove the following packages:                       
1)     teamviewer7                                       

     Keep the following packages at their current version:
2)     ia32-libs [Not Installed]

So I accept the solution with a "Y" but leaves me with nothing.
Because teamviewer7 is removed and ia32-libs is not installed.

What should I do?

I really need teamviewer installed on this waldorf system.


Be excellent to each other!

Re: Trying to install teamviewer on a waldorf system

hi sandwhich,

I think you need to properly configure "multiarch" if this thread helps you...
anyway, as far as I know, the command should be

sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_linux_x64.deb

instead of

sudo dpkg -i ./teamviewer_linux_x64.deb

Recently the windows version of Teamviewer has been updated to version 8..for Windowz and Mac..not for Linux which is still stuck at version 7... mad
The problem is that, if you need to connect from your Linux box to Win or Mac having TV8, the program will complain it is not're left with the choice to install TV8 beta for Linux (which it seems to be  a bit buggy to me) or downgrade everything to TV7...I would suggest the latter...

Provided you set up multiarch correctly, try the following:
Purge both packages. Then install ia32-libs and then teamviewer. If you still get errors try apt-get install -f.
