I just installed the PET package in Lucid 5.0, and it does connect with another Linux OS running the "final" TeamViewer for Linux, version 5.0.8888. It connects just fine from the other Linux box, but if I try to remotely reposition a window on the Lucid box, the "move" function gets stuck and won't let the mouse go. I found that if I click the middle roller wheel on the Lucid box, it will let go, and the cursor returns to normal.

Wonder if this PET can be updated to include the latest TeamViewer version, and not the Beta that's in it now???

Many thanks!!

Teamviewer 6.
I have followed Tronkels lead, taken the Deb, commented out a few lines in the teamviewer script so it wont complain about running in root.

This has been made and tested in Lupu 5. although i expect it will work in other Puppies.

The tests were limited to Pup 5.11 and 5.2 to Windows XP and back again, and just using the remote control feature. So probably needs a more rigorous run.

Its here:

md5sum cf00769feff3153ca55a7d7bf21771b4

Hope its ok

In case anyone would prefer to run as a user instead of root, you can download and install the .deb file as it is in Puppy 431 and higher, directly from http://www.teamviewer.com/download/

Before installing the .deb file do the following:

Just paste this code in a newly created file named "teamviewer.desktop" and place it in "/usr/share/applications"
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Teamviewer
Icon=/opt/teamviewer/teamviewer/6/desktop/teamviewer.png
Comment=Remote Desktop Application
Exec=su -c /opt/teamviewer/teamviewer/6/bin/teamviewer spot
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=X-Internet
GenericName= teamviewer


You'll now launch Teamviewer as user "spot"

Cheers,
s

Terrific! I got it to work on my Puppy 5.0.1.

Note, I installed the .deb version.

I thought I'd share a couple of wrinkles I had to iron out:

    Teamviewer complained about running as root so I went with seaside's suggestion above about editing teamviewer.desktop. I don't remember exactly what happened but after installing the .deb, I had to re-enter seaside's code to run as user spot.

    There were some permission problems with teamviewer failing to create symlinks in /root/spot. To fix, in Rox, I did a right-click on /root/spot to look at Properties, then I ticked the 2nd and 3rd Write boxes. That is, I ticked them all. (Later, once I could run Teamviewer, I unticked those latter two Write boxes and teamviewer still seemed to work.)



Interestingly, after I got it running, I tried to exit without connecting to anything (because I had no one to connect to) and I was prompted to test using TeamViewer's demo server, which I did, and it worked.

Good stuff. Currently, when I have to support someone remotely, I use Crossloop running under XP running under VirtualBox running under Puppy. Whew! This way should be much better!

Thanks to all involved!

Indy

indy,

Yes, if you don't create the "teamviewer.desktop" file before installing the .deb file and then only run teamviewer from the "teamviewer.desktop" file, you'll get the "running as root" complaints.

If "teamviewer" isn't in the menu system under menu>internet, run in a terminal "fixmenus" and then "jwm -restart".

I must say, I've used teamviewer a number of times and it has yet to fail. A very clever and well thought out product to assist others remotely.

Regards,
s

I tried it also with Puppy 5.2 on Virtualbox as guest and Win Vista as host, works too. Thank you!

If you happen to install the .deb file first, you can still create the "teamviewer.desktop" file and then install the .deb file again. A TeamViewer icon will be in the Internet section of the Menu. I'm writing this post from another Linux distro/computer using TeamViewer6 to access the Lucid Puppy 5.2 computer with the fresh installation of TeamViewer6.

this works with the teamviewer6.deb

another way is to navigate to /opt/teamviewer/teamviewer/6/bin/ right click on the teamviewer file and open as text. then where it says
Code:
userid=$(id -u)

if [ $userid = 0 ]
then
echo TeamViewer must not be executed as root!
exit 1
fi

change those lines to this....
Code:
##userid=$(id -u)

##if [ $userid = 0 ]
##then
##        echo TeamViewer must not be executed as root!
##        exit 1
##fi
and then save
