    Teamviewer for Linux as a service

    So I have installed the new Teamviewer Beta for Linux onto my computer which is running Ubuntu 10.04. It is working awesome! However right now, if I need for any reason to restart my home computer (ubuntu) I can not logon to my computer again as Teamviewer is down.

    So my question is, how can I either
    1) setup teamviewer to start as a service as soon as the computer has started, and not me logging in yet. or
    2) start teamviewer from command line?

    Thanks for any help on the subject.

    Will that allow it to start up before you login? Or do I have to login first? See what I want to do is to be able to restart the computer, remotely, and be able to teamview into the machine without having to have someone login to the computer at home.

    Same problem, the startup applications option just works when somebody login.
    Some idea?

    You could try to make shell script like this one:

    #!/bin/bash
    /usr/bin/teamviewer

    or whatever is the path to the teamviewer executable (I don't recall it right now), save it to:
    /etc/init.d/teamviewer_start
    and change permission:
    chmod 777 /etc/init.d/teamviewer_start
    create link:
    ln -s /etc/init.d/teamviewer_start /etc/rc5.d/S99teamviewer

    and it should start with the machine regardless of the fact that no user has yet done login.
    remark:
    /etc/rc5.d/ is the directory where startup scripts are located (default init level is 5, that's why it is named rc5.d). Scripts whose names start with capital "S" are executed in alphabetical order, starting from S00 to S99.
    Following the analogy, the directory /etc/rc0.d/ contains stop script executed when machine goes down. Their names begin with "K" starting from K00 to K99.

    Not sure if this can be setup to work prior to login, as it is actually a wine application (ie they are just running the windows application under wine, to get a version for Linux...)
    Also, looks like there is a forum has now been setup for TeamViewer (I "think" it's a semi(?)official one) at http://teamviewerforums.com/index.php. VERY new - at this stage there is only a handful of posts.
    I have asked the question there....
    Thanks, John.

    Doesn't look the remotest bit official, never mind "semi".

    Has anything changed? Is there any possibility to run teamviewer on Ubuntu as service?
