When I follow that advices: TeamViewer 11 won't run on Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit I get following errors:

al@alpc:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb
Selecting previously unselected package teamviewer:i386.
(Reading database ... 286983 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb ...
Unpacking teamviewer:i386 (11.0.57095) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of teamviewer:i386:
 teamviewer:i386 depends on libdbus-1-3.
 teamviewer:i386 depends on libfontconfig1.
 teamviewer:i386 depends on libsm6.

But when I try to install missed libs I see:

al@alpc:~/Downloads$ sudo apt-get install libdbus-1-3 libdbus-1-3:i386
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
libdbus-1-3 is already the newest version (1.10.6-1ubuntu3).
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libdbus-1-3:i386 : Depends: libsystemd0:i386 but it is not going to be installed
 teamviewer:i386 : Depends: libfontconfig1:i386 but it is not going to be installed
                   Depends: libsm6:i386 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

And so on for all required libs. Trying to fix dependencies didn't helps me:

When I try to run teamviewer:

al@alpc:~/Downloads$ teamviewer 

XRandRWait: No value set. Using default.

About libdbus it seems that this library is installed:

al@alpc:~/Downloads$ sudo find / -iregex ".*libdbus-1.so.3.*"

How to fix that? What is the problem. I completely confused.

  • What happens if you just double-click on the .deb file? gdebi should open it, and it'll tell you if there are missing dependencies. I recently installed teamviewer_11.0.52520_i386.deb without a problem. What is the output of dpkg --print-architecture and dpkg --print-foreign-architectures. Let me know.
