I stumbled upon the following quote while trying to figure out why teamview is failing silently.
WARNING! teamviewer 13 requires a desktop environment or login with lightdm etc, with startx it won't work, the staff of teamviewer confirmed, startx feature won't come in this year, it seems reverting back to teamviewer 12 is the only option for startx folks.
The teamviewer people are pretty in the we don't give a fuck mood. So you either have to install bloat-ware on your pc or stick to an older version of teamviewer.
