Thread: TeamViewer: icon in KDE system tray not visible

  1. #1

    Default TeamViewer: icon in KDE system tray not visible

    Title; this is what I actually meant in an old thread of mine, I wasn't able to explain myself. It hasn't been fixed in Leap 15.1.
    https://paste.opensuse.org/78050477
    Starting TeamViewer from the tar.xz portable file works, once all needed libraries are in place. To quit one goes to menu Connection > Quit TeamViewer. If "closing" TeamViewer window by clicking the standard 'X' button it minimizes to system tray; problem is, as shown in image, TeamViewer icon is completely invisible. Only way to tell it's still there is by hovering the mouse pointer over it, or at least over where it supposed to be (see arrow).

    This happens either with Plasma X11 and Plasma Wayland; the later additionally makes TeamViewer GUI display a message saying "Wayland detected: incoming remote connections will fail. Only X11 sessions are supported".
    Happens also with newly created users.

    Tested with latest TeamViewer 14 tar.xz available.

    Here it works with X11, but I do not use wayland.

    Did you install teamviewer or teamviewer-suse - teamviewer does not work but teamviewer-suse does. They have a special version for suse.

    I use this repo to get the latest versions.

    Code:
    cat /etc/zypp/repos.d/teamviewer.repo
    [teamviewer]
    name=TeamViewer - $basearch
    baseurl=https://linux.teamviewer.com/yum/stable/main/binary-$basearch/
    gpgkey=https://linux.teamviewer.com/pubkey/TeamViewer2017.asc
    gpgcheck=1
    enabled=1
    type=rpm-md
    failovermethod=priority
    Opensuse 15.1 with VirtualBox VM's (Windows 98, XP, 7, 8.1, 10 & OpenSUSE 15.0)

    Unix since 1974 (pdp-11 in "B" , Interdata 7/32 in "C") (AT&T, Tandy, Convergent, IBM, NCR, HP flavors)
    Linux since 1995 (mandrake, redhat, fedora, centos, now OpenSUSE)

    What are you talking about?
    Of course not; I *didn't install* TeamViewer at all, I just downloaded and ran the portable tar.xz, available on TeamViewer's downloads website.

    The first one; see answer above.

    Downloaded and run as User with:
    Code:
    ./teamviewer
    Icon in the system tray is shown here.

    Maybe use another theme?

    I tried the suse RPM version.

    I remembered why I didn't like it as much as the totally portable version: not only installs TeamViewer itself, but also its repository, and perhaps other more "obscure" stuff. I'm explaining what I mean right next.

    Ran the just installed RPM version and saw indeed that icon works well, it's shown in system tray as it should.
    Now tried uninstalling all I could found about it: the package itself, the repository, its /etc directory, some .svg files somewhere inside /usr/share/[...], even the GPG key.

    Tried running again the portable tar.xz... TeamViewer icon still there in system tray.

    When I first tried TeamViewer on Leap 15.1, I did with the tar.xz in a completely clean openSUSE installation. Installing the RPM package made some additional changes that made portable version's icon to work. Issue is, I can't figure out what it was.

    Could someone have an idea?
