I tried to install Teamviewer 8 on Xubuntu 13.10 after the first problems I tries this solution:

Teamviewer dependends of lib32asound2

But that doesen't work either, after trying (as root)

apt-get install libc6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libasound2:i386 libfreetype6:i386 zlib1g:i386 libsm6:i386 libxdamage1:i386 libxext6:i386 libxfixes3:i386 libxrender1:i386 libxtst6:i386
wget http://www.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_linux.deb
dpkg -i teamviewer_linux.deb 

I get these messages:

Vorbereitung zum Ersetzen von teamviewer 8.0.20931 (durch teamviewer_linux.deb) ...
initctl: Unbekannter Auftrag: teamviewerd
Ersatz für teamviewer wird entpackt ...
teamviewer (8.0.20931) wird eingerichtet ...
initctl: Unbekannter Auftrag: teamviewerd

I guess in english:

initctl: unknown task: teamviewerd

After some apt-get upgrades during the last days, this seem to be fixed by now:

sudo service teamviewerd start

starts the deamon now and I can start teamviewer after that.

The strange thing is, that I have to start the teamviewerd now by hand each time I want to use Teamviewer (Before the upgrade Teamviewer could start right away)

as a newbie i tried : sudo apt-get install libc6-i386 the result was: Depends: bash (>= 3.0) , libc6-i386 (>= 2.4), lib32asound2, lib32z1, libxext6, ia32-libs –  user253713 Mar 1 at 19:29

Here's the actual solution

Here's what that page says:

Notes to Multiarch:
On newer 64-bit DEB-systems with Multiarch-support (Debian 7) teamviewer_linux_x64.deb cannot be installed because the package ia32-libs is not available anymore on these systems. In this case you can use teamviewer_linux.deb instead.

In case you get the error “wrong architecture i386” you have to execute the following command lines:

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
For further information: http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/HOWTO

Basically, what they're saying (without saying it) is that, even though tthere's a package called "64 bit", it's not. So you have to install the 32bit one.

He installed the correct package, as said in his question (which is linked to my answer), the problem was that teamviewer service/daemon do not starts. –  Braiam Dec 11 '13 at 13:11

Download the Teamviewer on the given below links and double clicks it, in order to run the setup with Ubuntu software center.
