See page TeamViewer 6.x, 5.x, 4.x, 3.x, 2.x and 1.x (a download page). Get the .DEB file from there and install it with

sudo dpkg -i <filename.deb>

Give the password, and it will install.

Although they made a "deb" installable package, it seems not to work if you don't have wine installed.

1) Install Wine.

2) Go to their website and download the installer for your computer archicteture (32 or 64 bits).

3) Make the downloaded file executable. Then double click it.

If you are feeling lazy, just paste this at terminal and I will do all above for you:

sudo apt-get install wine ; rm -R /tmp/teaminstall/ ; mkdir /tmp/teaminstall/ && cd /tmp/teaminstall/ && p=$(uname -p) && if [ $p = "x86_64" ] ; then wget -c http://www.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_linux_x64.deb ; else wget -c http://www.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_linux.deb ; fi ; chmod +x /tmp/teaminstall/teamviewer_linux* && sudo /tmp/teaminstall/teamviewer_linux*

Glad someone reported the Wine issue as well... I am installing on a Ubuntu Linux VPS and the error was that Wine was missing. Thanks for the code paste, worked like a charm :) –  fuzzyanalysis Nov 13 '12 at 13:19

You can download the .DEB file from Teamviewer website. Once the download is finished, double click on the file will open ubuntu software center and you will be able to install it from there.

Just got TeamViewer 7.0.9350 to install on 64-bit Kubuntu 12.04. Saw at least one bug report and forum discussion where many people seem to be troubled by difficulties in doing so:

I must say it was not as easy as with 32-bit Kubuntu 10.10 where just downloading a Debian package from teamviewer.com and installing it was enough. I was also bothered by error messages such as the following in the first attempt:

Package libc6-i386 is not installed.

The trick was to:

Finally, the Debian package could be installed as usual by running "dpkg -i teamviewer_linux_x64.deb". Note that all the commands mentioned above need super-user privileges.
