Install TeamViewer in Ubuntu 16.04 using command line/terminal

Keywords: TeamViewer, Ubuntu, command line, dpkg command, terminal

Recently I needed to install the TeamViewer in my Ubuntu 16.04 machine.  I downloaded the latest 64-bit version of TeamViewer from TeamViewer web-site. I tried to install TeamViewer using Ubuntu’s graphical installer “Ubuntu Software Center” many times but it keep getting failed without displaying any error.

If you are facing the same problem then you can install the TeamViewer through command line.

Please follow the below steps to install it.

Open terminal (command line) window and run the following command.

sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_13.0.9865_amd64.deb

In case you see some error reported by “dpkg” command regarding missing dependencies like below screen shot then you have to use another command to resolve the issue.

Run below command to resolve the dependencies issue:

sudo apt-get install -f

Once completed run the “dpkg” command again.

sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_13.0.9865_amd64.deb

Now it should install the TeamViewer successfully, in that case you will see the output like below screen shot.

Now you can check/access the “TeamViewer” by searching it in the dash.

For more information or installation of TeamViewer  on other Linux Distro. you can visit TeamViewer community.
