Installing Team Viewer on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS – Automatically installing dependencies

ON UBUNTU MACHINES – NOT FOR DEBIAN 7 64BIT – SEE BELOW FOR DEBIAN 7 64BIT INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS 

Auto Install Dependencies

Notes to Multiarch

On newer 64-bit DEB-systems with Multiarch-support (Debian 7) teamviewer_linux_x64.deb cannot be installed because the package ia32-libs is not available anymore on these systems. In this case you can use teamviewer_linux.deb instead.

So, how to install it?

First, download it:

wget http://www.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_linux.deb

Now you have 2 options. You can use gdebi (recommended) to solve the dependencies, or you can solve them yourself.

Gdebi method:

First, install gdebi:

sudo apt-get install gdebi

In the same directory you downloade the .deb file just run:

sudo gdebi teamviewer_linux.deb

It will list the dependencies and install it with a y.
