How to install Teamviewer on Pep9 (Solved)
« on: January 10, 2019, 11:06:38 am »
I could not find teamviewer in the software manager, and was wondering if it can be installed on peppermint9..
I have a text file containing information on how to install on linux mint 19 and was wondering if i should try it on Pep9
but i wanted to ask first because pep9 is running fantastic and i did not want to mess it up..

Should work unless you need a previous version, most of which are available on TeamViewer's site with a little searching. There is also a link to a .deb package at https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/linux/
Use the Ubuntu, Debian link.

Yeah, download the .deb directly from Teamviewer as MNFrozenFish says .. we cannot distribute it in the default repositories because it's closed source.

tried it but it does not work, i get the same issue that another poster got on his machine, it comes up with an invisible screen when you launch it, and then after 30 seconds or so the screen goes away, and the program aborts....

I am installing this anydesk right now with software manager, I will give that a try....

I think it is more of any issue with the age of the machine and not the OS or teamviewer program, I have tried 5 linux versions so far, and none of them will run teamviewer, but those same os's on my netbooks run teamviewer just fine....

anydesk works however the linux version of it I am not happy with, the windows version works great ...
any clues how to set anydesk up on linux so that it runs on bootup?
also i need to find out how in linux to create an anydesk alias or id, because every time it runs it gives me different access code, i need it to be same code every time....
on windows this was easy, i was presented with a welcome screen which offered me choice of making an alias id which i did....  and it is running on boot automatically after install on windows....
I looked all over the linux version i just can not find out how to do it....

Is AnyDesk in the menu ?

If so, what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -a ~/.local/share/applications | grep any

If you installed anydesk from the .deb file on their website, you should have a file:-

/usr/share/applications/anydesk.desktop

you want to copy this to your autostart directory
Code: [Select]
cp -v /usr/share/applications/anydesk.desktop ~/.config/autostart/anydesk.desktop
