TeamViewer install borked, can’t seem to fix

Xubuntu 18.10

So the other day I went to run TeamViewer and found it was gone. So I tried to re-install it and this happens:

$   sudo apt install teamviewer Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree       Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.

I’ve tried a few things:

$   sudo apt-get install -f Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree       Reading state information... Done 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded. 

I’ve also tried Synaptic to install qt56-teamviewer, but that fails too and just says it’s “broken”.

I suspect a non-standard PPA repository, but any useful way to determine which one so I just fix this problem without causing other problems (such as blowing away the entire sources.list and replacing with default)? I noticed a lot of the sources have “bionic” in them even though I’m on cosmic. Should I change all references to “bionic” to “cosmic” instead?

Installation of Teamviewer on Ubuntu 17.04 does not work (32-Bit machine)

I installed Ubuntu 17.04 on my 32-Bit notebook (previously used a WinXP-machine).
The notebook is a 32-Bit machine with 3GB RAM. Installtion of Ubuntu 17.04 worked fine.
I then tried to install Teamviewer (downloaded file teamviewer_14.1.18533_i386.deb), but constantly failed. During – incomplete – installation of Teamviewer I received messages about missing files/packages like

libqt5x11extras5
qt56-teamviewer
qml-module-qtquick-controls
qml-module-qtquick-dialogs

I had to remove Teamviewer from my system.
I am a rather unexperienced Ubuntu-user and wonder if someone can help me out with a description of steps to walk through when installing Teamviewer, especially how to install a .deb-file including all dependancies which might be necessary.

Thanks for your support. Best regards Michael

Teamviewer abandons operating systems

So Teamviewer recently came up with a rule that everyone needs to use the most recent version (which presently, is 14). After June, older OSs not under contract will not be supported. Unfortunately, that version is unusable on many operating systems. I keep one Mac as 10.6, so I can use old Adobe software, and that OS only supports Teamviewer 9 or earlier.

So is Teamviewer simply blowing off old operating systems? I’ve posted this question on the TV community forum, and no one wants to answer. I suspect the answer is “yes”, which I find a little distressing.

how to access an specific application remotely in android ? (Not screen sharing like teamviewer but just an specific application)

I’m new to Android development I want to create an application just like TeamViewer but in local connection without internet I don’t want to share the whole screen but only an application, i.e want to access an application that is on another smartphone and it should run on that smartphone only just the other will access the UI of that application and that application would run in background of that host while the host can do his task simultaneously. Is it possible programmatically any help would be great..!

how does teamviewer like applications work? [on hold]

I’m developing my final year project which will be an application similar like Teamviewer for android. I’m kinda new to android as well ,my question is what technology is used by teamviewer to read the screen reading and the co-ordinates that perfectly match the host device and performes the touch operation on the host device remotely. how can i implement it through code in my application that can capture the real time virtual images from the client and pass it to the host device and connection between client and host device is local means no internet i guess wifi-direct would be useful correct me if i’m wrong. This application is Android to android .

Connect to remote TeamViewer computer desktop via MacOS terminal command line

How can I launch a TeamViewer remote desktop session to a remote computer from the MacOS command line, assuming that I know the Partner ID of the remote computer?

I already found documentation of command line parameters here, but there’s no MacOS instructions for launching a remote session, only PC instructions. Yes, I know the document says that command line arguments work for both PC and Mac, but there’s obviously no TeamViewer.exe on a Mac so I think the main question is where is the Mac equivalent to TeamViewer.exe?

BTW, I want to do this so that I can set up dock icons for each remote computer so that I can connect to them with one click on the dock, without the hassle of opening up TeamViewer to pick the remote client. After I figure out how to launch a remote desktop session from the command line, the next step will be to figure out how to launch a command line via a dock icon, but that’s presumably well-documented via Google! 😉
