How to control TeamViewer daemon

📅 2016-Jun-06 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

When TeamViewer is executed on Linux as teamviewer at the shell, it actually runs from this Bash script: /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script/tvw_main

The TeamViewer server can be controlled by using the --daemon option. The different actions that are possible are stop, start, restart, enable, disable and status.

For example, to restart the daemon:

$ sudo teamviewer --daemon restart

Tried with: TeamViewer 11.0.53191, Wine 1.6 and Ubuntu 15.10
