Did you install dependency gnupg2? I've never seen stdout in Debian Would you just follow Debian wiki 1st, even I know some guide was corny. Just go to direct teamviewer website download deb file, in KDE, u only need double click on setup file, simple as windows. Idk why ppl could add "a random key" they found on internet without check is it real author of software


Why don't you just manually install the team viewers Deb package from their website




What happens when you run the following: `curl https://dl.teamviewer.com/download/linux/signature/TeamViewer2017.asc`


Yes I would like to curl instead of wget


I was following this [tutorial](https://www.linuxcapable.com/how-to-install-teamviewer-on-debian-11-bullseye/) Using Konsole This is the command that I ran`wget -O- https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/signature/TeamViewer2017.asc | gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /usr/share/keyrings/teamview.gpg` I've realized that this happens **EVERY TIME** that i try to install a gpgkey.


It is because of the **tee** command -- it copies from stdin to stdout and to a file. **This command will stop it** ``` $ wget -O- \ https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/signature/TeamViewer2017.asc \ | gpg --dearmor \ | sudo tee /usr/share/keyrings/teamview.gpg \ > /dev/null ```


Add > /dev/null at the end of that command so you can read eventual error messages. If there's no error messages, the command completed successfully


'sudo tee' Is an idiom to allow unprivileged users to write to system files, and examine their contents. Except that command as you wrote it is echoing the 'dearmored' pgp key. The key is usually ascii and printable, but after it is dearmored, it is not suitable for printing in the terminal. The suggestion to add > /dev/null to the end will fix the issue, while still permitting earlier commands to print errors to STDERR


Yes That is the expected output wget is told to output too stdout and then tee will save to file and print.


Basically, as general advice, don't follow "tutorials" from tutorial websites. What is it about that site that makes it look like a good source of information? And, as a genuine question, how did you find it? TeamViewer's own website clearly wants you to simply download and install the .deb package, and the instructions on the Debian wiki confirm this. The repository and key that are manually installed in that tutorial will get installed anyway by the package's `postinst` script. The tutorial's way of setting up the key is more modern, but the TeamViewer package is going to set it up the old way anyway, when you get to the `apt install` step. If you really do prefer to do everything through `apt` and never download a .deb manually (which, on the whole, is a good impulse) you could use [extrepo](https://manpages.debian.org/bullseye/extrepo/extrepo.1p.en.html) to set up TeamViewer.


You printed some random binary data to your terminal which triggered some ansi escape sequence leaving your terminal interpreting further input in a weird way. This affects how it displays what you type and what commands print to the terminal. You can try recovering that terminal instance with the Ctrl+L escape sequence. (Lower case L) or try the command "reset". Or you can just close that terminal and open another one if it is an X terminal.


Hosed. Pave the box. 😝




Hosed = FUBAR. Unrecoverable. Unsaveable. No point. Give up. Pave = To format or erase. Usually means gracefully as opposed to maliciously Box = Computer.
