TeamViewer 8 has been released, but unfortunately, it's only released on Windows and Mac. Linux version is still stuck at version 7 and it's not yet compatible with the latest version on another platform.
Windows machine on the office has been upgraded to version 8 and when i
tried to connect to that machine from my Linux system which is still
running version 7, it says that i should upgrade my TeamViewer
installation to latest version. I have been using the tar.gz binary file
to install TeamViewer, but TeamViewer 8 Beta for Linux is only provided
on DEB and RPM format, so i had to rely on Binh's SlackBuild script on
SBo project which converted from DEB to TGZ format.
problem is that TeamViewer 8 has some path changes as well as service
addon. Right now, we need to make sure that teamviewer daemon
(teamviewerd) is started before we launch the main TeamViewer
application. I have successfully modified the SlackBuild to work with
TeamViewer 8 and i'm planning to push it to my SlackHacks repository,
but first, i would like to ask for his permission first. When it's
approved, you will see it on my SlackHacks soon enough :)
