After upgrade sparky testing teamviewer doesn't work anymore. Init...
CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes
XRandRWait: No value set. Using default.
XRandRWait: Started by user.
Checking setup...
Launching TeamViewer ...
Launching TeamViewer GUI ..


I have checked it out, and it works fine on Debian Stretch/Sparky 4, but doesn't on Buster/Sparky 5.
It is closed source package so I can only guess that it was compiled on Debian stable (Stretch) and is binary compatible with the stable libs.

I found the solutiom on teamviewer community:
I faced with the same problem on debian buster (testing). After upgrading of libfreetype6 package the teamviewer gui stop working.

There is a better solution. I download i386 libfreetype6 package for debian stable from Then I unpack this package and put two files from them (, to /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/RTlib/ directory.

1) system package libfreetype6 was NOT replaced by older version
2) teamviewer works just fine.


extacting a .deb file was a little bit of challange
but, following steps from post above >>>>yes, it worked perfectly
thanks, you saved my day
