Two handy oneliners to get Teamviewer running on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS clients.

Update 2016-03-10

Just as the title suggests, two ways to use Teamviewer remote support software on Ubuntu client PCs.

  1. Install Teamviewer on default installation (requires root / sudo access!):

    sudo wget && sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_i386.deb || sudo apt-get -y -f install

    sudo wget downloads the software (sudo is not really necessary here actually), sudo dpkg then tries to install it using the debian package management which will fail due to missing dependencies and thus cause apt-get to repair the Teamviewer installation (by downloading all necessary packages).

  2. Start Teamviewer on Ubuntu client PC without installation (no root required!)

    wget && tar xvfJ teamviewer_i386.tar.xz && ./teamviewer/teamviewer

    wget downloads the software, tar unpacks it and the last element starts the software

Hope this helps,
