The problem is I can't run Teamviewer on Kubuntu. That problem exists for me since 12.10 and I as I remember, it was with the 7th version either. I download official package from officical web site, for 64 bit system. Install it, then install all dependencies (apt-get install -f). When I start it, window with License agreement appears and I can't agree with it, because I don't see anything, even mouse cursor is invisible on window area. Here's the trace of teamviewer from console:

kirokko ~ $ teamviewer

What's the problem? The same problem was when I had Ubuntu 12.10 installed, then the same problem was when I installed Mint 14 KDE (Kubuntu 12.10). Now I moved to Kubuntu 13.04 and the problem still exists.

Have you installed the ia32-libs package? I installed team viewer recently on a 12.04 kubuntu box and I had to install that package to make it work.

I think yes, because it's all installed as dependencies (install -f option using apt-get). I checked that and I got message that everything installed and is up to date. – jdahfklajhdkfjhakldjhfaiuf Jun 30 '13 at 16:19
