HI

I have tried both:
yum remove teamviewer8
yum remove teamviewer9

And didn´t find any application with that name, but when I tried "yum remove teamviewer" fedora found the version 9, so after uninstalling it there seems to be teamviewer 8 installed but doesn´t work.

Regards.

What do you mean it is not working; is it trying to open up or does nothing?  Do you get an error message?

Plus perform an

ls on /opt location you might have something teamviewer or teamviewer8...

Can you try this.....

su -
cp -r /opt/teamviewer8/tv_bin/script/team/teamviewerd.service /lib/systemd/system/
cd /lib/systemd/system/
service teamviewerd start

Make the daemon permanent

systemctl enable teamviewerd.service

does nothing, actually the icon appears without the image just the name "Teamviewer 8" under applications category

Here is the result of ls on /opt location:

/opt:
2X  google  teamviewer8  teamviewer9

You mean from the terminal? I was logged as a root

You can try to reinstall:
yum reinstall teamviewer._redhat.rpm
I tried that possible solution but seems that there was an error, here is what happened

[root@mylap ~]# yum reinstall teamviewer._redhat.rpm

Here is the latest download link for Teamviewer 8 locate the rpm package and try to install it.

Try to remove all instance of the current teamviewer and folders.

What happens if you try running teamviewer from another user account (not root). The teamviewer uses wine to run, and if there is something wrong with wine, or with it's settings (which are per user), it wouldn't run properly. Running it under a new account would create new settings for that user and it may run.
