Error on Installing Teamviewer on Debian

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I'm trying to install Teamviewer on my Debian. I followed the instructions given on the Teamviewer Help page. However, it is showing an error telling me that the Install Packages Files are not supported. I am using Dolphin browser if that will help. I attached the complete error message below. Please help me fix this issue as I need the Teamviewer for my business. Thanks.

Error on Installing Teamviewer on Debian


I don’t see any problem about TeamViewer’s support for Linux. The latest stable version of TeamViewer is version 9 and it is available in 6 different platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. For users running Microsoft Windows, it works on Windows Home Server, Windows Home Server 2011, Windows Server 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows NT Service Pack 6a, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

If you are running Mac OS X, it will run on Mac OS X 10.6 and higher. For users running Linux, it requires CentOS, Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, Mint, Red Hat, SUSE, and Ubuntu. For users who are running older operating systems such as Windows 2000, Windows Millennium, Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows Server 2000, Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, you may need to visit first Compatibility With Older Operating Systems.

Because your operating system is supported maybe you only installed it incorrectly and not a compatibility issue. And also, maybe you are installing an older version of TeamViewer. Additionally, if you want to upgrade to the latest version, you need to download it from the TeamViewer official website and install it manually because the installer is not available via PPA.

If you have a 32-bit Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pear OS, Crunchbang, Elementary OS, or Kwheezy, follow these to download and install TeamViewer 9:

  • $ wget
  • $ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_linux.deb
  • $ sudo apt-get install –f

For the 64-bit versions of these platforms, here are the steps:

  • $ wget
  • $ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_linux_x64.deb
  • $ sudo apt-get install -f
