TeamViewer is one of the many programs that exist that allow controlling a computer while the operator is on a different computer, usually to offer online support.

With this type of programs the user only has to accept a message so that the technician can connect to his computer and can perform the requested task remotely.

First we will proceed to download the TeamViewer program. Automatically we will detect the operating system, however if we want to download a version for another operating system we can do it from the “Downloads” tab and then choose the operating system.


Once downloaded it is enough to execute the file so that it starts and we can start using it.

Linux / Mac

There are two possibilities for these operating systems, since it allows us to download an installable version, through deb or rpm packages, and also the tar.gz version that allows us a manual installation.

  • Installation with package manager:
    • Deb packages (Debian / Ubuntu / Linux Mint):
      • sudo dpkg -i
      • teamviewer
    •  Rpm packages (Suse, RedHat, CentOs, Fedora):
      • sudo rpm -i
      • teamviewer
  • Manual installation (Other distributions):
    • We will open a console
    • We will go to the folder where we want to save the program files
      • cd / opt /
    •  Unzip the file
      • tar zxvf
    • We will enter the decompressed folder
      • cd
    • We will run Teamviewer
      • ./teamviewer

Once installed when executing it we can see teamviewer

You must provide the number that appears (YOUR ID) to the technician. When this attempt to connect must accept to allow remote connection. From here we recommend that you do not touch the mouse or the keyboard so as not to interfere with the technician.

You can find more information and support about teamviewer on its support page and on our Youtube Infofly channel.
