hi pete22

you are right about the wine, it's not needed Smile

anyway, what puppy are you using? as i've tried this on both lucid puppy and on a vanilla slacko and it works! just the teamviewer7.deb (has to be 7) and the teamviewerstart.pet

you need to launch it from the network menu entry
or by typing

Code:
teamviewer
in a terminal

I was able to get it working if I installed wine first. So thank you!!!!


Perhaps I did it wrong before. So Let me try again.

I may have looked under internet instead of network.

I will try this on several puppies and will tell you what happens.



Pete.

Subject description: It works great!
 

It works great if when you are downloading the deb file, you tell puppy to open the .deb file with petget instead of saving it.

Do the same for your teamviewerstart.pet
All goes well.

This worked for me on lazYpup.5.28.4 and lighthouse pup 4.43

I found out where I went wrong. I downloaded the deb file instead. When I clicked on it, instead of installing it where it should go, it extracted it to a new directory in the download directory. That's why your teamviewerstart.pet could not find it.

I went back and found my download deb file.This time I right clicked to get the "open with" menu. I was hoping that petget would be listed there. But on my puppy, Lighthouse pup 4.43 it wasn't. However, when I finally found petget, I was able to properly open the saved deb file. Then your teamviewerstart.pet worked like a charm.

Is there an easy way to get petget on the open with menu?

I have lots of different puppy flavors. I will try teamviewerstart.pet on them as well.

Question: have you made teamviewerstart.pet so it might be continue to work with future versions of teamviewer or will it only work with version 7? [ assuming that teamviewer doesn't make too many changes to their program. ]

Again thanks for your work.

Pete

hi pete22

glad it's working for you now...

teamviewer won't run as root, so the startteamviewer.pet uses iguleders pet here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72667 , but rather than running chromium it runs teamviewer.

it should work with future versions of team viewer, but you will need to alter the script slightly..... navigate to /usr/bin/teamviewer right click on it and open as text.... you'll see this
Code:
#!/bin/sh

LD_PRELOAD="/usr/lib/libpuppygc.so" teamviewer7


so when teamviewer8 comes out change the 7 to 8 (or whatever the new binary is called)

you can use iguleders pet to run other programs that refuse to run as root. (just change 'teamviewer7' to the name of the binary you want to run)


as for the default .deb action with your browser. in my firefox i do get a choice of whether to extract or use petget, i guess it may be different for each browser. anyway just saving the deb and then clicking on it installs it. you'll also have a copy of it then.

Got this:
# teamviewer
TeamViewer: 7.0.9360
Profile: /root (root)
Desktop:
/etc/*-release

Error: *** TeamViewer can not be executed with sudo! ***
Either use your normal user account without sudo
or use a the real root account to log in to your desktop (not recommended!).

#


How to fix?

hi Sylvander
are you using the pet posted here? http://www.mediafire.com/file/7m4gkse7mb8ee43/teamviewerstart.pet to run it as root

Yes.
I installed both prog's by using the 2 links you gave.
Ran it by using the resulting "Menu->Internet->Teamviewer" entry.

this is very strange.... on lucid puppy it won't let you start as root, where as on slacko it requires you to be root!

so to start it just click on /usr/bin/teamviewer7

to get the menu entry to work goto /usr/share/applications/ and right click on teamviewer.desktop and open as text

then edit the line 'Exec=teamviewer' to 'Exec=teamviewer7' and save

SUCCESS! Very Happy

It now runs without any problems. Cool

Thank you Sooo much!

This is important to me because my ISP [Virgin] tech assistance routinely use Teamviewer, normally within Windows [they don't support Linux], but I no longer have Windows installed.
So I'm hoping [next time] to be able to tell them I have teamviewer available within Puppy, and have them agree to go ahead and use it.

hi gents,

my teamviewer on precise puppy 5.4.3 crashed so i upgraded to precise 5.5 live CD and tried to reinstall using these versions of teamviewer, which i succeeded but teamveiwer doesnt work.

when i open usr/bin/teamviewer, it refers to:

LD_PRELOAD=" /usr/lib/libpuppygc.so" teamviewer 7

and i think i need to change from teamviewer 7 to teamviewer?

but i cant because the file is read-only, presumably as I have a live CD session?

can anyone help please?

EDIT: from the console it says:

/usr/bin/teamviewer: line 3: teamviewer 7: command not found

i tried using teamviewer 8 but i cant connect between my host computer and remote computer (this linux computer). i read on the teamviewer 8 forums that this is a common problem on teamviewer 8, so i have decided to downgrade back to teamviewer 7 and use the anti-root pet file. but it didnt work for me. so now I am at a loss. any other ideas on using teamviewer 7 or is there a teamviwer 7 sfs anywhere?
