I think teamviewer is used to access a Linux box from a windows machine. I have not installed teamviewer, but as far as i know, you have to copy the teamviewer file on both windows and linux machines and it should work. Check it out.

Ok, i figured out how teamviewer works. It is designed to work on windows. So, if you want to make it work on Ubuntu, you have install wine on Ubuntu and install this windows application. Hope this helps.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine

wine TeamViewer_Setup.exe

and most probably you are done and ready to launch TeamViewer but I'm not sure you may have problems running TeamViewer on ubuntu, I suggest you can try the older version of TeamViewer that may help you out !!!

I have tested running TeamViewer under Wine in Ubuntu GNU/Linux 9.10 and it's running like a charm... You can definitely use it.

The TeamViewer I used is very latest one; TeamViewer 5

Are u sure this worked well under wine? Coz I wanted to connect to my ubuntu server installed at office from the internet using Teamviewer but was unsuccessful. Or is there a software for Ubuntu that works Teamviewer.

Teamviewer for Linux

Teamviewer now has a linux version. Go to http://www.teamviewer.com/download/index.aspx?os=linux
to download it.

Also, you could use the web interface in any web browser w/ flash support.
