Today I’m pushing out a lot of posts, this time about „Howto install Teamspeak 3 on Elementary OS 0.3“.
- Go to http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads and grab the client either x86 (32bit) or amd64 (64bit)
- Open Terminal and go to the folder you downloaded the client to. On my PC it looked like this:
benjamin@BensTux:~$ cd Downloads/ benjamin@BensTux:~/Downloads$ chmod +x TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64-3.0.16.run benjamin@BensTux:~/Downloads$ ./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64-3.0.16.run Welcome to the TeamSpeak 3 Client for Linux on amd64 installer In order to install this software you are required to accept the license agreement, please press return to view the license. You can scroll with the arrow keys and quit the viewer by pressing 'q'. [RETURN] Please type y to accept, n otherwise: y Creating directory TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64 Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing TeamSpeak 3 Client for Linux on amd64 100%
- Move the client sudo mv ~/Downloads/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/ /opt/
- Download the Teamspeak Icon below, which is from the official plugin SDK
- Now create a new Desktop Entry at vim ~/.local/share/applications/teamspeak.desktop with the content
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=Teamspeak 3 Client GenericName=Teamspeak Version=3.0.16 Comment=Speak with your friends Exec=/opt/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/ts3client_runscript.sh Icon=/opt/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/Teamspeak3-Icon.png Terminal=false X-MultipleArgs=false Categories=Network StartupWMClass=Teamspeak StartupNotify=true
Now you can start and run Teamspeak from the Launcher. Have fun talking!
It doesnt start for me what can i do?
Try running it from the commandline and have a look at the output. I havn’t used Elementary now for quite a while. Sorry.
