To enabale a password-less start / stop of teamviewer using sudo,
the sudo-password policy need to be placed in a sudoers-file .

Thank you for all your answers, I really need to figure this remote software before i install MX on bunch of computers that are over 5000 miles away from me, to users that never used Linux before ;-) Will play with Teamviewer next few days.

What is the significance/difference of "password-less start"?
When I try to help someone that someone would not need to enter password? Or I would not need to enter the password or anything else? (never used it yet)

You shall try both Teamviewer and AnyDesk, As I found AnyDesk is more relyable (for me!).
Further I found Teamviewer, when to "often" used, will block you as they seem "think" you appear to violate the for "private use" license.

Teamviewer requires to have a "daemon" running in the background, which needs to be started as root.
The default after installing is: Teamviewr-daemon will always run in background,
which is not needed for me and provides a couple of issues when shutting down or when wake up from suspense.
Hence I disabled the daemon, using

Code: Select all

sudo sysv-rc-conf
but would need now to start the daemon before I can use teamviewer.

About "AnyDesk", do you prefer it over teamviewer? How did you install it on MX, with *.deb or building/compiling it yourself?
Yes, for me AnyDesk never failed. Note: The main AnyDesk devoloper are former chief Teamviewer-developer, and started this fresh AnyDesk, shortly after teamviewer was sold to a foreign company.
As we have not yet it with MX Popular Apps,
get a debian deb-package from the AnyDesk website.

OK I understand now everything. Yes I wouldn't like it to keep running in background either. Seems like AnyDesk may be a better choice based on all you wrote, thank you.

I dl AnyDesk from their site, but I got ...tar.gz file. I extracted it and got a folder that I don't know what to do with it. Tried to run few files but unsuccessfully. Since it semms to be better than teamviewer I will ask to be added to MXPI if possible. Thank you for all your time today and all your help!

Thank you!!!
How in the world I didn't see that link, I will go back to their page and see if I can find it. Sorry for all the trouble. Got it installed, thanks again

Edit, figured it out, what I did wrong, I was using browser that blocks some javascript/or similar stuff. So when i clicked I want Debian/Ubuntu/Mint version, it didn't switch and I got the same 'generic' version which is *.tar.gz
