I've waited until 18.04.1 to post this to be sure it wasn't something that the .1 release would fix.
Please note this is a query about Teamviewer on Kubuntu, thus KDE - Plasma.
We have a corporate license for Teamviewer 9 that we don't want to "upgrade" to their new subscription model - it's a money pit.
Teamviewer 9 on 16.04 works great - in its own Wine shell. Sadly it doesn't work on 18.04.
On 18.04, the daemon and the executable start (
ps -ef shows them running) but the front end doesn't show on the desktop.
Running the program from the shell on command line doesn't bring up anything of significance in the output.
We rely on our corporate branded Teamviewer license to assist our clients remotely and monitor their systems.
We use Kubuntu on the command and control systems and the hosts are a variety of Windows 7, 10, Server 2003 and 2008.
We cannot, I stress, upgrade to a newer version on our Kubuntu machines, because the over 200 systems that run our branded Teamviewer host only allow a 5 minute connection from a different version of Teamviewer. Branded hosts are locked to only accept connections from the same version of Teamviewer control session.
It's clear that the program is running with no errors on 18.04.1 but is just not showing the UI.
This problem is stopping us from upgrading most of our office machines to 18.04.
I suspect it's some bizarre problem with Wayland.
What type of tests, environment description and data do you need to help fix this?
I have access to both 16.04 and 18.04 LTS machines.
Thank you for your help.
