Ubuntu will not upgrade to Teamviewer 9
« on: December 12, 2013, 07:40:13 AM »
I have sight problems so TeamViewer is really useful when I need to look at other machines especially laptops.  This machine uses TeamViewer 8 but will not load the upgrade to 9 so that I can connect to Windows 7 with TeamViewer 9.

Is there a workaround for this please?

why doesn't it load?  Are you given any error message?

Thank you for your reply.  The installation starts and then there is an error message:

Package operation failed. The installation or removal of a software package failed.

This is directly from the TeamViewer website.  The Ubuntu Software Centre only offers Version 7.

trying downgrading your local machine to version 7 maybe?

Start a ticket with support as well, use the link in my signature.
May want to check and ubuntu forum as well...similar to this thread:

Thank you for your reply.

I usually ask the Ubuntu Forum first but as this was so specific I thought it best to ask here first.  I will follow up the link and come back to you if necessary.

I had a similar problem.  Did you get yours solved?

I'm afraid I haven't got on with solving this problem, but it needs sorting.
