While attempting to run teamviewer 6 on BT5, as usual, I got the error:
Error: TeamViewer must not be executed as root!
so the solution is simple
root@bt:~# cd /opt/teamviewer/teamviewer/6/bin/
root@bt:/opt/teamviewer/teamviewer/6/bin# gedit wrapper
then edit the file as
and instead of “die” just replace that with “echo”. This way it would run and every time remind you of security issues as well.
local userid=$(id -u)
if [ $userid = 0 ] ; then
echo “TeamViewer must not be executed as root!”
or simply just uncomment the whole if – fi structure.
