ps.: when installing teamviewer on my Ubuntu 64 bits I got a dependency error (*) that was solved by installing wine before trying to install teamviewer (sudo apt-get install wine).


 teamviewer6 depends on libc6-i386 (>= 2.7); however:
  Package libc6-i386 is not installed.
 teamviewer6 depends on lib32asound2; however:
  Package lib32asound2 is not installed.
 teamviewer6 depends on lib32z1; however:
  Package lib32z1 is not installed.
 teamviewer6 depends on ia32-libs; however:
