Slackware Teamviewer


I build teamviewer (SlackBuilds) and install it on my system. I red the README. It needs to execute rc.teamvewerd start. Then I enter teamviewer command but it always saying launching GUI and will return on prompt few secs but the GUI doesnt show up.

Anyone encountered this problem? Please help me. Thanks.

Are you launching it from X? An rc.something is usually for boot up.

It may be opening a second instance of X (So if your first is on Alt-F7, your second will be on Alt-F8). Youi can usually read the rc. file which is a bash script, and see what it's doing.

I only have one X instance. I read the rc.teamviewerd but its just when you start it it will execute teamviewerd --daemon start

Nothing fancy, but still can't launch its GUI

So it's the program that's doing it? Is that a script? Run
Code:
file /path/to/teamviewerd
and post the output.

TeamViewer has a nasty habit of starting multiple 'zombies' of itself. Which is why, in the TeamViewer packages I assemble for Puppy Linux, we use the following launcher script in /usr/bin, sym-linked to the /opt/teamviewer startup script.


Code:
#!/bin/sh

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/wine/lib"
cd /opt/teamviewer
./teamviewer

sleep 5
pkill -9 teamviewer

exit 0
Which kills the spawned 'zombies', and lets TeamViewer start as normal. (It detects if it's already running, and refuses to start until a previous instance is closed).


Mike.

Not trying to resurrect an old thread, but have been struggling with this thing as well.
Got the problem, not yet the solution.

The problem appears to be in libwebp; From the top of my head it wants libwebp.so.6, Slackware comes with a higher version libwebp.so.7 iirc. (or it comes from slackbuilds.org; I think it was that)

Have yet to find a nice workaround for this.
