Teamviewer 14 on Slackware 14.2 not working.


I need to run Teamviewer 14.x to connect to other systems running TV 14. I tried the TV13 Slackbuild, it runs but will not connect to a TV 14 server per the TV protocol.

I downloaded the TV 14.1.18533 portable build.

I have teamviewerd running.

When I execute teamviewer the GUI starts but the "Your ID" field is empty and I cannot interact with the e-mail or passwords fields in order to sign in to my account.

In the "Control Remote Computer" panel I can enter a remote partner ID and hit connect and the status changes to "Connecting..." but nothing ever happens and eventually I have to hit abort.

Does anyone else have TV 14.x working on Slackware 14.2?

There's a reason why I did not update to version 14 yet

I haven't found solution yet, but there's a workaround - close Teamviewer GUI and fire away
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.teamviewerd restart
as a root.

Question

I'm not exactly clear on what this solves?

So you have TeamViewer 14.X working and the GUI is responding?

Is /etc/rc.d/rc.teamviewerd referring to a TV 14 or a TV 13 script? As Willy said, he's not updated the SlackBuild to TV14 yet because of issues like this.

I appreciate any clarification.

The solution is about the teamviewer daemon, aka the server... so that you can control your slackware machine.
It is a solution for another known issue, iirc a race condition that causes teamviewer service to not run correctly.

The issue slackwhere describes is the other way around: a client that tries to connect. IIRC teamviewer clients can not connect to a newer server, newer clients can connect to an older server.
So TV14 client can connect fine to a TV13 server, but TV13 client cannot connect to a TV14 server.

Hence the issue raised.

Hi
I have the same symptoms that you've described, but when I restart the demon, teamviewer gui gets id, logins to the account and is fully operational. Yes, this is newest TV14.

Well darn, I wish my installation had the special sauce that yours does.

You reference /etc/rc.d/rc.teamviewerd so I assume this script is referencing a TV14 installation that you built and not the TV13 daemon, correct?

If so did you install any particular libraries in order to get it work?

And just to be clear you're running Slackware 14.2, not current?

Thanks again,
Wayne

Sorry, forgot to mention - I'm on current. Not sure if that makes any difference, since I use regular slackbuild from slackbuilds.org; the one thing I change inside is the version number, nothing more. It installs TV to /opt/teamviewer, creates /etc/rc.d/rc.teamviewer.d, nothing fancy.

Ahh ok, thanks Tom. I will fire up container running "current" when I have time and report my findings.
