    These instructions don’t work for me, i’m afraid, and the mess they leave is very great. At the last step, when i try to install teamviewer, i get

    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of teamviewer:
    teamviewer depends on lib32asound2; however:
    Package lib32asound2 is not installed.
    teamviewer depends on ia32-libs; however:
    Package ia32-libs is not installed.

    and trying to install these leads to a complete mess.

  • worked for me. thank you
