How to Install Teamviewer on Ubuntu 16.04

To install Teamviewr, Download appropriate .deb file from http://www.teamviewer.com/download

In our case we downloaded, teamviewer_13.0.6634_i386.deb which is current (when we installed) recent version of teamviewer.

 $ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_13.0.6634_i386.deb 

This will install teamviewer if all dependencies are allready installed, if not you might get an error like below,
