What can I do to install it?

  • Have you tried installing it using gdebi? sudo apt install gdebi then sudo gdebi teamviewer_12.0.76279_amd64.deb or even apt itself: sudo apt install teamviewer_12.0.76279_amd64.deb

1 Answer 1


I have found an answer for this problem here.

There is an official package at teamviewer website and you can get it like this:

wget http://download.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_i386.deb

it works for x64 bit ubuntu!!

This package is somehow different and just let's you to install it.

Just download it and run sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_i386.deb


this works also for x64 version of ubuntu!

and sometimes the teamviewer wont show the ID number and password, then you need to restart the teamviewer daemon with this command:

sudo teamviewer --daemon restart

and then start the teamviewer again
