The TeamViewer development team provides us with a DEB package that we can download to perform the installation.

So, open a terminal and execute the following command:

:~$ wget -c https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/teamviewer_amd64.deb

The package is quite light so the download should be completed relatively quickly.

To install the downloaded package I always recommend using gdebi. This installer also allows you to manage dependencies and is quite fast.

If you don’t have it downloaded, just run the following command:

:~$ sudo apt install gdebi

And then, install TeamViewer with the following command:

:~$ sudo gdebi teamviewer_amd64.deb
