How do I install TeamViewer on Linux

install teamviewer on linux


Graphical installation

For installing TeamViewer, we recommend using the graphical installer. The graphical installer can be invoked by (double) clicking the downloaded package.
If this is not the case and, e.g. the Archive Manager opens up, open the context menu instead (right-click on the downloaded package). Depending on your distribution you will get different possibilities to install the package, e.g. “Open with software installation”, “Open with GDebi package installer”, “Open with Ubuntu Software Center”, or “Open with> QApt package installer”.

RedHat, CentOS, Fedora, SUSE

You need the teamviewer_linux.rpm package.
For installing TeamViewer, we recommend using the graphical installer.
If you prefer to use the command line or if there is no graphical installer available you can use either one of these commands:
  • yum install teamviewer_linux.rpm (recommended, as it will install missing dependencies)
  • rpm -i teamviewer_linux.rpm
In case “yum” is asking for a missing public key, you can download it here and import the key by using following command:

After importing the public key, please execute the “yum”-command again to install the TeamViewer rpm.

Other platforms

TeamViewer does also run on a lot of other distributions, although not officially supported.
You can use our tar.gz package which will only create files in the directory where you extract it to. The tar.gz package works, if the libraries that TeamViewer depends on are installed which is often the case.
On Mandriva/Mageia TeamViewer can be installed using the following command:
  • urpmi --force --allow-nodeps teamviewer_linux.rpm
On PCLinuxOS TeamViewer can be installed from the repository. The package is provided by the PCLinuxOS team.
