Installed Teamviewer using a 64-bits system, but I get a dependency error (Kali)
 
I've read pretty much every previously posted question about this, and they all look like they eventually just got abandoned with no useful answers.

I tried:
Code:

sudo apt-get install -f
then
Code:

sudo apt-get update
then
Code:

sudo apt-get upgrade
then
Code:

sudo apt-get -f install /root/Downloads/teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb
and just get this:
Code:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree     
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'teamviewer:i386' instead of '/root/Downloads/teamviewer_11.0.57095_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

I've been trying for days to get this done from a brand new install of Kali, I don't understand.

It also does the same thing when I try to install Pulseaudio, and I don't have any sound.

Also tried this:
Code:

sudo sh -c "apt-get update;apt-get dist-upgrade;apt-get autoremove;apt-get autoclean"
...and tried installing again, didn't work.

I'm pretty new with Linux, so please try to take it easy on me with the terminology.

What does teamviewer or pulseaudio have to do with pentesting?

Install Mint or such and try again.

FrozenPea123 10-02-2016 04:12 AM

You can't use it for both?

I wanted to have it so I can do some experiments at home, and also use for other basic shit too

It makes a lot more sense to have a daily driver that you can modify to take to the track on weekends, rather than to try commuting and shopping in your F1 car...

Kali is specifically designed to do a particular job.

Hahaha fantastic analogy.

Thanks for the tip!

Hey! Since I got you here, what do you suggest? I'm downloading Mint Cinnamon right now. What do you think?

descendant_command 10-02-2016 05:08 AM

I like Debian and haven't distro-hopped in a long time but Mint seems a popular entry vehicle for newbies that has most of the newbie "must-haves" covered out of the box (and I won't recommend ubuntu to anybody).
You'll get as any opinions as there are users, so really, try it and see. :)

//scratching my head trying to recall how i got it running on F22
you do have to get deps resolved.
The issue i could not resolve was having an installation of wine been present. Once i remove wine the TV worked out just fine.
just sharing my experience.

P.S. btw it saves a lot of time and energy to install a windows and have it ran there.
