How to install TeamViewer on Kali Linux 2

This is a short but step-by-step guide on how to install Teamviewer on Kali Linux 2. I recently faced huge issues in installing Teamviewer on Kali Linxu but finally I did it by some help from internet and some of my own effort in finding issues. Anyhow, let us begin installation of Teamviewer on Kali linux.

Version here that I used for installation are:—

Kali Linux:              Kali Linux 2.0   64 bit

Team Viewer:         Teamviewer_10.0.46203_i386.deb

We now only have one version of Teamviewer to install on any either 32 bit or 64 bit Linux OS.

– First we need to Update OS:

# apt-get update

 

– Install gdebi for installing Teamviewer:

# apt-get install gdebi

# apt-get update

      Hi,
      It is giving error due to missing or broken packages. Please try following commands to clean apt-get cache and update latest one:
      # sudo apt-get autoclean
      # sudo apt-get clean-all
      # sudo apt-get update

      then try to install again, if still facing issue, try following command to automatically install all required repositories.

      # sudo apt-get install -f

      Hopefully, this will work.

      Thanks
      Attique
