If you don’t know what TeamViewer is, it is a free (for home use only) remote support application that lets you remotely access and troubleshoot PCs over the Internet / LAN. You can use it to help friends / family fix computer issues, share your desktop session all for free from a remote location anywhere in the world where there’s Internet access.

    I tried your sugestion of “sudo apt-get -f install” and got this error report:-
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libsane_1.0.23-0ubuntu1_i386.deb (–unpack):
    trying to overwrite shared ‘/etc/sane.d/kodakaio.conf’, which is different from other instances of package libsane:i386
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    If possible I would be very grateful if you could present a solution on this for me. Thanking you in advance. Johan.,

    Your instructions were very handy and I could install Teamviewer on a ubuntu linux 13.10 – Saucy Salamander. It worked! Thanks a lot.
