Dependency is not satisfiable: TeamViewer install error

📅 2014-Apr-21 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

Problem

I downloaded 64-bit DEB package of TeamViewer to install on my 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04 system. Installing this teamviewer_linux_x64.deb file using gdebi gave this error:

This package is uninstallable
Dependency is not satisfiable: lib32asound2

Though libasound2 was already installed, TeamViewer was giving this error.

Solution

It turns out that the 64-bit TeamViewer install package cannot be correctly installed on recent 64-bit Ubuntu systems due to dependency problems. Instead, download the 32-bit/multiarch package. This teamviewer_linux.deb file installed and worked correctly on my system.

Tried with: TeamViewer 9.0.27891 and Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit
