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 ./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_x86-3.0.12.run
  3. ./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_x86-3.0.12.run

  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. "./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_x86-3.0.12.run" 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
this is what i get when i follow the first set of instructions: postimg.org/image/igsft75dz this is the last page of the same: postimg.org/image/75jt4zp6l after following the 2nd set of instructions, this is what i get: postimg.org/image/u4aa2n9qr all in all, i have still not been able to install teamspeak :( –  Shiv Hastawala Sep 12 '13 at 16:40

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 ./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_x86-3.0.12.run
  3. OR if 64bit version: chmod u+x ./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64-
  4. ./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_x86-3.0.12.run
  5. OR if 64bit version: ./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64-
  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
