Installing TeamViewer 8 on Slackware64

December 5, 2015 | Article | No Comments

TeamViewer is a proprietary application for remote control any computer or Mac over the internet. Teamviewer mainly used for online meeting and currently used by more that 100 million users (as stated by their site). Teamviewer also support linux and the latest version (per February 5th 2013) is 8.0.16675.

In this article we will use Slackware64 14.0 with multilib support. Unfortunately if you are not activating multilib yet, you cannot run teamviewer. It also requires 32 bit packages such as: glibc, zlib, freetype, alsa-lib, GConf. And another thing, Teamviewer is not supporting Slackware officially and the SlackBuild only provide version 7. So to install TeamViewer, we will do a little trick.

First download the TeamViewer on their official site. The one we will use is this one.

Download the files on this url on a single directory. Then do build by invoking the script.

sh teamviewer.SlackBuild

Then copy the rc.teamviewerd to /etc/rc.d directory. Make sure you give execute permission to it.

To run TeamViewer, you must run rc.teamviewerd first by:

/etc/rc.d/rc.teamviewerd start

To start the daemon on every boot sequence, add this line in /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.teamviewerd ]; then
  /etc/rc.d/rc.teamviewerd start

And congratulation! We have install TeamViewer. Wanna conference? 🙂
