I can't install teamviewer in Zorin OS 16.2

I can't install teamviewer (teamviewer_15.38.3_amd64) because Zorin OS 16.2 doesn't have the libminizip1 package which it has dependency on.
I tried to install the libminizip1 package, but to no avail.

Gday @samuelalmeida , Welcome to our community!
I just insatlled this a few days back, it went good for me,
First try looking at this,

let us know how you go.

Hi Ocka!

I already tried to install it that way, but there is a dependency on the libminizip1 package.
Also, I am unable to install the libminizip1 package on Zorin OS 16.2.

Gday @samuelalmeida ,
Ok, Open the Terminal,
Try this,
1, sudo apt autoremove TeamViewer
2, sudo apt purge
3, sudo apt update
4, sudo apt upgrade
5, reboot
After reboot run these commands
1, sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras
2, wget ttps://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/teamviewer_amd64.deb
Note: place " h " to make it "https" above in terminal.
3, sudo apt install ./teamviewer_amd64.deb

Hope this helps.

I stopped using TeamViewer on Windows after helping a work colleague's family member needing help installing Comodo Internet Security Suite (the free one). After that one instance I kept being bombarded by emails from their Sales Department. Better to use good free alternatives:

I got the error "Cannot find package ubuntu-restricted-extras".

Also, it fails to install the teamviewer package because it depends on the libminizip1 package.


sudo apt install -y libminizip1

If that doesn't work, try installing gdebi

sudo apt install -y gdebi

and installing it from there.

Hope this helps!
