Install TeamViewer on Ubuntu 22.04

TeamViewer is a secure cross-platform solution that enables remote access and file transfer between Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. It can also be used for desktop sharing and web conferencing.

This article provides instructions on how to install TeamViewer on Ubuntu 22.04 and other Debian-based operating systems.

Installing TeamViewer on Ubuntu 22.04

Since TeamViewer is proprietary software, it cannot be found in the standard Ubuntu repositories. We will need to download and install the TeamViewer installation package from the TeamViewer website.

Head over to the TeamViewer Linux downloads page and download the TeamViewer (Classic) DEB package. If you are not sure which package to download, choose the “x86-64bit” package.

If you’re not comfortable with using the command line, you can easily download the file using your browser. Once downloaded, simply double-click on the file and follow the instructions provided by the installation wizard.

Open your terminal and download the latest TeamViewer .deb package using the following wget command:


Once the download is complete, update the package index and install TeamViewer by running:

sudo apt updatesudo apt install ./teamviewer_amd64.deb

When prompted, Do you want to continue? [Y/n], type Y to continue the installation.

That’s it. TeamViewer has been installed on your Ubuntu system, and you can start using it.

Starting TeamViewer

TeamViewer application can be launched either from the command line by typing teamviewer or by clicking on the TeamViewer icon in the Applications menu.

Updating TeamViewer
