Popular Remote Desktop Tool TeamViewer 8 For Linux (Stable) Released
TeamViewer is a popular application for remote control, desktop sharing, file transfer, online meetings and more, that's available for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, Android and iPhone. The application is free (freeware) for personal use only!
The Linux version uses Wine which comes bundled with it (it doesn't require the user to install Wine, like the old Picasa for Linux package), so it's not a native Linux application.The latest TeamViewer 8 (stable) for Windows was released back in December and today, the stable version is also available for Linux. While in beta, there were two bugs that affected for many users (myself included) until recently, which resulted either an "TeamViewer Daemon is not running. Please start teamviewerd and then restart TeamViewer" error message or a ghost window showing up.
But these issues seem fixed and TeamViewer 8 for Linux has worked properly in my tests under Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10 and 12.04. I'm not sure if these issues were present in other Linux distributions and if they were fixed or not.
Upgrading to the latest TeamViewer 8 is required if you want to establish a remote connection to a computer running TeamViewer 8, however, this is not neccesary if you want to connect to a computer running TeamViewer 4, 5, 6 or 7 if you're using TeamViewer 7.http://www.webupd8.org/2013/02/popular-remote-desktop-tool-teamviewer.html
