Help Installing TeamViewer 12 in debian 9 linux
« on: October 06, 2017, 06:42:17 PM »
Hi,
Newbie here.  I'm trying to install teamview 12 in my debian 9 linux on an old laptop. 
I downloaded the package teamview_12xxx_i386.deb

I did (as root):
Code: [Select]
apt install ./teamview_12xxx_i386.deb
Here are the errors:
Code: [Select]
root@debian:/home/will/Downloads# apt install teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb'
root@debian:/home/will/Downloads# apt install ./teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb

Note, selecting 'teamviewer:i386' instead of './teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb'
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.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 teamviewer:i386 : Depends: libc6:i386 (>= 2.11) but it is not installable
                   Depends: libgcc1:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libasound2:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libdbus-1-3:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libexpat1:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libfontconfig1:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libfreetype6:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libjpeg62:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libsm6:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libxdamage1:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libxext6:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libxfixes3:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libxinerama1:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libxrandr2:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libxrender1:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libxtst6:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: zlib1g:i386 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I then did an
Code: [Select]
apt-get -f installbut that didn't help.  Any suggestions?
