This question already has an answer here:

I installed (partially) TeamViewer but the installation did not complete because dependency errors. Teamviewer depends on ia32-libs which depends on ia32-libs-i386. The dependency tree can get quite long.

I tried running sudo apt-get install -f to no avail. Please if anyone has tips on installation help me.

As suggested the output of sudo apt-get install -f is

More problems to get a complete view of this problem. I tried this dpkg --add-architecture i386 but dpkg says

dpkg: error: unknown option --add-architecture

so might the problem be with dpkg?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Could you post what does sudo apt-get install -f exactly say at the moment? –  Vadi Sep 8 '13 at 8:40
@Vadi I edited it see above –  mojo706 Sep 8 '13 at 18:35
as you can see I enter the command and see that. I remove teamviewer and then try and re-install. Its a cycle :( –  mojo706 Sep 8 '13 at 18:44
Make sure you need the 32 bit version. I has similar problems and tracked it back to running the 32 bit instead of the 64 bit version. –  crafter Sep 8 '13 at 19:13
I need 64bit but I can't find them –  mojo706 Sep 8 '13 at 19:19

1 Answer 1

Do what it says - type Y. Then download the 64bit .deb from https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/linux.aspx, double-click on that and install that - it'll work.

I tried that. The one I have is the 64 bit version. I have tried everything you have asked. –  mojo706 Sep 9 '13 at 12:00
What is the mentioned dependency tree, then? You haven't posted part of the output and only what you see when you have to remove the package due to incomplete dependencies. –  Vadi Sep 9 '13 at 20:24
here are the dependencies. paste.ubuntu.com/6087054 –  mojo706 Sep 10 '13 at 9:03

Nope no help there. I tried installing the said package for 12.04 but it did not work. –  mojo706 Sep 10 '13 at 11:58
