Howto install Teamviewer 9.x on Ubuntu >= 12.04 64bit (in my case 13.10)

January 2, 2014

Basically it is simple but the 64bit makes it a little bit more difficult. It is not logical from the outside but don’t use the 64bit version. Why? As described here distributions with multiarch support can’t resolve the ia32-libs packages. But there is a simple solution to this which is not described there, as adding an additional architecture doesn’t feel right.

Install gdebi (gdebi lets you install local deb packages resolving and installing  its dependencies. apt does the same, but only for remote (http, ftp)  located packages.):

sudo apt-get install gdebi

Download the 32bit version


Use gdebi to install and resolve the dependencies:

$ sudo gdebi teamviewer_linux.deb
