You misunderstand me. It does work very well in Linux.....but the TeamViewer package has WINE built-in to it; version 1.6, if I'm right. They've been building the Linux packages this way for ages. If you've used TeamViewer over the last few years, you've been using WINE, whether you like it or not..!
I'm guessing they couldn't be bothered to write a Linux package from scratch, so they've simply used the existing Windoze app.....and employed WINE as the quickest, simplest solution to make it run. No 'biggie'; it works, that's the main thing.....right?
Download the latest Linux tarball from TeamViewer GmbH's downloads page:-
...extract the contents, and have a look if you don't believe me.
The contents are the same as the Ubuntu/Debian package, trust me.....and incidentally, that i386 is correct. TeamViewer has only ever been a 32-bit package, as it employs the multi-arch stuff to run on 64-bit. It needs to be 32-bit, since WINE is 32-bit; that way, they make one set of coding do the honours for I-don't-know-HOW-many different platforms.
(The team at WineHQ are working on a 64-bit version - have been for a while - but it's still not up to full public release, yet.)
Them's the facts, mate. I've been re-packaging this for Puppy for the last 4 or 5 releases (I 'inherited' the work from another Puppian, who's no longer on the forum).....so by now, I know exactly what's in there! When you remove the TeamViewer package, the built-in WINE goes with it. ....no trace of it left on your system, since it was never actually installed in the first place. TeamViewer have only used WINE like a 'shim', to make a square peg fit a round hole... Simple as that.
