I need a way to have just the QS QuickSupport TeamViewer module 'installed' and available for a non-technical user to simply click on.
(I reviewed both "I can’t install teamviewer in Zorin OS 16.2" and "How to install teamviewer app on zorin", which referenced "Install TeamViewer Zorin Help" https://help.zorin.com/docs/apps-games/install-teamviewer/. As I say, those are for the Full TV Client, not the QS mini app.)
WHAT I tried, as I need the QS (QuickSupport) NOT the full client.
It saved to Downloads
Expand the GZip into its folder (still in Downloads), the folder is named "teamviewerqs"
I can double-click the "teamviewer" executable and it runs and provides the expected mini-window showing just:
TeamViewer QuickSupport, with the Your ID and Password fields populating after a few seconds.
So looks to work perfectly from there. However,
But, I am trying to make this findable for the Zorin user, who is not a technical person. So having it be in a folder in Downloads is not a permanent situation.
I tried sending a alias-shortcut to the desktop but it does not actually invoke the TeamViewerQS program, instead offering me the choices of:
Execute in terminal, Show, Cancel, Execute. I've tried them all, and the expected Execute button just causes something to very briefly flash on screen then nothing.
Does anyone know of a way to allow an icon to make TeamViewerQS run from the Desktop or Toolbar/taskbar/panel, or perhaps from the Zorin Start menu?
(I know that TeamViewer does not want you to "install" the QS, as they normally try to make you run it from a disk image in both Mac and Windows. But I have been able to 'install'/copy the executable to Programs or Desktop in Windows, and Applications or Desktop in Mac. I just don't yet know how to do that in Zorin/linux.)
