This is my first time using this forum and I am relatively new to ubuntu. I installed TeamViewer on another machine running 12.04 no problem. I have the same errors as the OP in this post: 'teamviewer depends on (...)' while trying to install TeamViewer

I followed the instructions given, but was left with the following error:

julian@antec300:~$ sudo apt-get install --fix-missing
[sudo] password for julian: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
teamviewer : Depends: libc6-i386 (>= 2.4) but it is not installed
              Depends: lib32asound2 but it is not installable
              Depends: lib32z1 but it is not installed
              Depends: ia32-libs but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

I have done the following:

sudo apt-get -f install

and then

sudo apt-get install libc6-i386 lib32asound2 lib32z1 ia32-libs

for which I get the following error:

sudo apt-get install libc6-i386 lib32asound2 lib32z1 ia32-libs
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

Package lib32asound2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'lib32asound2' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate

also tried installing the .deb with

sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_linux_x64.deb
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

Any thoughts most welcome

Make sure you download the 32-Bit / 64-Bit Multiarch version.

First delete team viewer version you have!!

Be sure to download team viewer from http://download.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_linux.deb'>here!!!

then install the package using sudo dpkg -i '../YOUR_FILE_PATH/teamviewer_linux.deb'

if any dependency errors: Try running sudo apt-get update Then try sudo apt-get -f install!!!

Hope this helps.
