Getting Teamviewer to work on Ubuntu 16.10

Teamviwer relies on a bunch of 32 bit dependencies you need to enable for it to install. This procedure should work:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo dpkg -i --force-depends teamviewer_i386.deb
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo teamviewer --daemon start

I always suggest you take a snapshot before if your file system supports this just in case.

Your favourite prompt

Today’s Bash tip. Create a prompt that changes face depending on the return code of your last command. As long as the return code is OK you get a happy face. When it is false you get a sad one.

Open and edit the .bashrc file in your home directory and enter the following:

PS1="\u@\h:\[\e[33m\]\w\[\e[0m\] \[\`if [[ \$? = "0" ]]; \
then echo '\e[32m=)\e[0m'; else echo '\e[31m=(\e[0m' ; fi\`\] \$ "

Have fun.
