How do you mean your teamviewer stays open? Could you describe it more? Are you still having a connection with another PC? Does it start up everytime you startup your PC? Does it run in the background when you force quit it? Does the teamviewer icon stay onn your taskbar or in the icon bar? Do you have a screenshot of some sort?
Having the exact same issue. I force quit TeamViewer, and it opens right back up. Currently trying to change that in system preferences but, worse case scenario, we might have to uninstall TeamViewer and install something like **Third Party Product**.
@Eric Root (and @leonie) for that answer. I deleted the file com.teamviewer.teamviewer.preferences.plist in my ~/library/preferences folder and once I remembered to reboot that fixed the problem. Thanks so much!
teamviewer is using upstart to fire up the daemon at boot. The upstart does have a respawn set to keep a process running. As a 12.04 user mentioned, respawn stanzas in the upstart script are probably what you want to comment out.
The teamviewer process is/will run as root if fired up upstart. Since the respawn is in the upstart script you could have issues killing it permanently whether you do an implicit kill or 'sudo stop teamviwer' (the upstart way) or 'sudo teamviewer --daemon status'. Your best bet is probably just to comment out respawn lines in the upstart script, then start and stop as the service as needed.
There has been some notice of the "TeamViewer remote control daemon" (teamviewerd) remaining active after the user is finished using and terminated teamviewer. Respawning is also used to make sure it stays active. The easiest solution is to reboot or logout after making sure the 'start with system' check box is cleared. When you log in, team viewer should not start and the daemon should not appear.
Note: the changes will not initially take effect until teamviewer reads the script. Reboot, log-out, or terminate and restart teamviewer are options. I only tried log-out and it worked for me. I did not try the other options as I modified the script only once.
I am using Ubuntu 14.04. I have no idea what the 'teamviewerd' process does, but I found that it is required to use TeamViewer. I use the 'gnome-system-monitor' to stop the 'teamviewerd' process when I reboot and when I am finished using TeamViewer. I 'continue' the process before I start using TeamViewer.The version I am currently using of the 'gnome-system-monitor' will ask for the authorization password when the 'stop' or 'continue' request is made. If your version of the 'gnome-system-monitor' does not ask for the authorization password and denies your request, you will need to start the 'gnome-system-monitor' in the terminal: gksudo gnome-system-monitorIf you are not familiar with the usage of the gnome-system-monitor, follow these suggested steps: select the 'Processes' tab select the 'teamviewerd' process right click and select 'Stop Process' or 'Continue Process'
Founded in 2005 in Germany, TeamViewer is now owned by European private equity firm Permira. Before the arrival of TeamViewer and other similar applications, desktop sharing used to be complicated and tedious to set up. Most remote desktop software applications at the time were deeply unintuitive, and they required extensive knowledge of computer networks.
Many people think that it is quite easy to remove the program on the Mac, but there are still a lot of people encounter some problems when they attempt to uninstall the application on their computers, and here are some common issues of the TeamViewer removal:
TeamViewer, a remote control program, can be very handy when you need remote IT support. The cybercriminals behind TeamSpy, unfortunately, also find the tool to be quite useful and use it to carry out malicious activity.
NVDA Remote doesn't send or receive audio. If you want audio, use Team Viewer or Microsoft Remote Desktop. I don't know how accessible either are on macOS as I haven't used them in a while, but RDP works quite well. It's peer-to-peer though, so you'll either need to be on the same network or configure your Windows computer to be accessible on the Internet by port forwarding, using remote port forwarding via SSH tunneling, or configure a VPN. You also need at least the Pro edition of Windows to turn your computer into an RDP server.
You may already have teamviewer running on your computer if you are using Windows 7, most staff computers have it installed. You can check your ID number by opening the teamviewer program if it's already running. To check, click on the up arrow in the bottom right hand corner of your screen. Look for the teamviewer icon depicted in the picture below in the blue circle. Click on the small icon and you should see the teamviewer window appear.
I'm trying to connect to my remote server using teamviewer 12.0.81460. It used to work absolutely fine. But from past few days I see a black screen when I connect using TeamViewer(see attached screenshot). But when I move the cursor it starts showing some points on the screen but that's also not clear. One thing I noticed is that when I connect with remote desktop from another PC and bypass this login screen it works fine. But this login screen has some issue. The solution I have tried so far: 2b1af7f3a8
