How to Install Teamviewer on Ubuntu 16.04 and Later ?

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

For 64 bit Ubuntu, download as,

$ wget -c https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/teamviewer_amd64.deb 
$ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_amd64.deb 
$ sudo apt-get -f install 
$ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_amd64.deb 
$ teamviewer 

In our case we are using 32 bit Ubutu, we downloaded, teamviewer_14.3.4730_i386.deb which is current (when we installed) recent version of teamviewer.

 $ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_14.3.4730_i386.deb 

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

 $ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_14.3.4730_i386.deb
Selecting previously unselected package teamviewer.
(Reading database ... 471110 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack teamviewer_14.3.4730_i386.deb ...
 
dpkg: error processing package teamviewer (--install):
Errors were encountered while processing:
 teamviewer

In that case, use below command as,

 sudo apt-get -f install 

which will install all dependancies and then after this try installing teamviewer will dpkg command again as,

 $ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_14.3.4730_i386.deb
