I have been trying to install Teamspeak using the following file but have been unable to do so. I use Ubuntu 12.04 lts 32-bit.

Kindly help with detailed steps since I have started using Ubuntu only yesterday.

Use these commands in a Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T):

  1. cd ~/Downloads (assuming saved in Downloads folder, otherwise where you saved it)
  2. chmod u+x ./
  3. ./

  4. Follow the instructions

or, you could try this (probably for an older version of Teamspeak, though)

sudo apt-get install teamspeak-client

There's no need to add a sudo to the run command. "./" is good enough. – Ruben Bakker Sep 12 '13 at 12:05
@RubenBakker Shouldn't sudo be needed to install software? Will it ask for sudo itself? – minerz029 Sep 12 '13 at 12:06
The .run file creates a directory with all files and executables required to run TS3. Running the installer through sudo forces the user to run TS3 as root; not very ideal. Running the installer without sudo allows the user to run TS3 without root. – Ruben Bakker Sep 12 '13 at 12:08
@RubenBakker Thanks for that, edited. What if one wanted to install it to /opt, would they just move the created folder there? – minerz029 Sep 12 '13 at 12:10
@ShivHastawala You should press the q key while in the license agreement, then type yes – minerz029 Sep 15 '13 at 8:14

For those unfamiliar with Linux:

Do the first three steps in the answer from minerz029.

  1. cd ~/Downloads (assuming saved in Downloads folder, otherwise where you saved it)
  2. chmod u+x ./
  3. OR if 64bit version: chmod u+x ./
  4. ./
  5. OR if 64bit version: ./
  6. Press enter to view the user agreement
  7. Press Q to leave the user agreement
  8. Type Yes to create the folder (named TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_xxxxxx)
  9. Open the folder, Run program called ts3client_linux_x86 or ts3client_linux_amd64
