I guess you all know my passion for Linux and that I am doing most work with it. But sadly there are always applications you need windows for, which requires a license and so on. But now the good news: Teamviewer is now available for Linux! So let’s take a look.
I fetched the tarball and extracted it, looking around in the directory structure. The bad news first: Teamviewer uses wine. Wine in that case isn’t some kind of Chardonnay – it is a way to run Windows applications on linux. But let’s disregard that for now and check the functionality.
After starting the application, the good old and familiar window pops up asking for an ID. I tested it with a second PC in range and it worked as expected. Great.
