    Cannot install Teamviewer

    I'm running Knoppix 6.7.1 with persistence, off a USB stick on an Acer Aspire 5520.
    I downloaded the 32 bit Teamviewer from here:

    http://www.teamviewer.com/en/help/36...tribution.aspx

    to my Knoppix desktop. Clicking on the installation folder launches Synaptic, but nothing happens once Synaptic has launched and I can't figure out what to do next.
    I issued the following:

    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_linux.deb
    dpkg: error processing teamviewer_linux.deb (--install):
    cannot access archive: No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    teamviewer_linux.deb

    I also tried Synaptic>File>Add downloaded packages, but the .deb file is greyed out when I find it on desktop. Have I downloaded the incorrect package?

    You have to use the right path where you saved the file.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i /home/knoppix/Desktop/teamviewer_linux.deb
