I disabled autostart. All my tests show that the client doesn't run without the server running.

"not autostarting TeamViewer makes remote support impossible"

What does that mean? Presumably, if you can install a package from AUR, you can enable/start TeamViewer, right?

Auto-starting proprietary code, with a history of vulnerabilities, which runs unsandboxed... seems like a pretty bad idea.

As I understand, this package includes both the client and server, and many people (incl. myself) won't need the server component at all, nor do they want it running at any time.

This is a weird argument, if a person doesn't want to learn how to start systemd services or even how to copy-paste the command from post_install notice, maybe they shouldn't be using Arch Linux in the first place.

Supporting you is easy. I can be sure that you'll get the 40 character command right. I want a teamviewer package with which I could remote support your mom. Part of Arch best practice is knowing when not to follow it. I can make a separate package if you like.

I strongly disagree with the decision to auto-enable teamviewerd.service in .install, Arch best-practise is to not enable services with install, even if they are needed to run/are the installed program.

I've decided to disown this package because the teamviewer aur package has been upgraded to version 13. If anyone wants to maintain this package please do so.

Regarding using teamviewer without a display manager, I just received a reply from one of the teamviewer developers (in the forum thread I linked previously):

"it will not happen this year. However, a part of TeamViewer is currently rewritten that will make it simpler to implement it in the future."

I am experiencing the same issue as several others here, I can't start TV without launching X via a display manager. There are several threads about this on the TV community forum, e.g. https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Linux/uninstalled-tar-package-running-without-display-manager/m-p/26866, but no solution available so far.

There is a duplicate of this package https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/teamviewer13/

@JJK I was having the exact same problem. I solved it by installing lightdm, lightdm-greeter-gtk, and lightdm-greeter-gtk-settings; sudo systemctl enable lightdm. Once I rebooted and logged in, TeamViewer GUI launched successfully for the first time and now I have everything up and running. I'm using XFCE fwiw. Hope this helps, sorry if it doesn't.

Tldr: install a greeter and reboot
