Teamviewer 13...(Unsolved Mystery)
« on: August 04, 2018, 05:30:27 pm »
I have downloaded Teamviewer 13 on my Dell Dimension 2400 bit..(Iknow old and wornout like me). Tried both regular program and host program, but when I try to open a dialog box in the program all I get is a box with the menu bar at top and a blank screen where the dialog should be at. I ask your forgivness if I am using the wrong termanology for what I am describing. Would post a screen shot if I knew how.

Sometimes I get a black screen when connecting to my upstairs PC (I am currently couch-bound with a fractured ankle). Rebooting my netbook always solves that problem.

So where's the blank screen where the dialog is supposed to be?
What was I thinking?

Okay, that image of the rocks, is that your desktop on the host (and you've trimmed it in an editor) .. or is it the desktop on the client ?

Ah right...

Has teamviewer ever worked ?

What happens if (with teamviewer closed) you open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.config/teamviewer ~/.config/teamviewer-oldthen
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.local/share/teamviewer13 ~/.local/share/teamviewer13-oldthen
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.cache/TeamViewer ~/.cache/TeamViewer-oldthen try to start teamviewer
Code: [Select]
/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script/teamviewer

Can you post the output of
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fzbut NOT as a screenshot .. as text (so it's searchable).
