Its a bit tricky to install Team Viewer 11 on Elementary OS Freya on 64 bit system since the DEB package provided by the official TeamViewer needs some i386 arch packages. But don’t worry, we can solve it easily.

First, add the i386 arch to the system by executing this command

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

Next, download Team Viewer  11 DEB for Ubuntu system. You can use the following command to download it via terminal.

cd /home/fitri/Downloads

Install gdebi (I prefer this app installer on my Ubuntu based Linux). Its handy and will solve the dependency files automatically.

sudo apt-get install gdebi
cd /home/fitri/Downloads
sudo gdebi teamviewer_i386.deb

When done, you can start using Team Viewer 11 on Elementary OS Freya 0.3.2. Thanks for come by.
