Is there any TeamViewer for linux plz tell me

Asked by mukund00in

I really like TeamViewer it is very easy to support a non-technical client - if they use XP/Vista.
However, what if my client dont use MS?

(: At home I use Ubuntu and Vista (Ubuntu default). At work I use XP. My wife is no computer freak... :)

Any suggestion?

TeamViewer runs under Wine just fine, except that you can not establish an INCOMING connection (have someone control your desktop). Using *VNC is fine as long as you don't mind figuring out destination IP addresses and configuring routers etc etc, unless you're using Hamachi.

TeamViewer is a much simpler solution than *VNC and Hamachi, and runs faster than any *VNC I've seen, even in full color mode. I'd love to see someone reverse-engineer this program and get it to run natively on Linux.

Please, remember teamviewer will only work with the win98 bottle. Install wine, configure than create win98 bottle, simple as that. bye

As of the middle of April 2010, i.e. last week, Teamviewer is now available for Linux. I installed it on my Acer Aspire One Ubuntu netbook, and it works a treat - I tested by connecting to my mac, and from the mac to the netbook. Teamviewer is great. Very simple install, just download the .deb (or whatever package relevant to your distro) and install. Have fun.

as an aside, I think Ubuntu is great - about a year ago, i got a netbook preloaded with Linpus, I wiped that, and installed ubuntu netbook remix 9.04, and have never looked back. It has been a pleasant learning curve. Right from the start, I had no idea about installing/burning cd's or live usbs. I created my first ever ubuntu live usb on my old apple eMac, using the instructions from the ubuntu website.

It was truly a moment of revelation when i booted the netbook, and there was Ubuntu itself, in all its magnificence. The only thing I missed about the OSX was the Dock - Happily, I now have Gnome-Do with the docky theme. All the apps I was using on mac are available for linux (I had gone open-source, or at least, free software, in my mac days) - teamviewer was the exception, and now we have it. I am not a purist - i have installed ubuntu restricted extras, and skype, and now teamviewer, which i presume is proprietary software.

So there, just a few thoughts from an ubuntu-happy chappie. Well done Shuttleworth - if you were running in the UK general election, you'd get my vote!!
