Installing Teamviewer 8 on Kali 64bit (Debian)

Installing Teamviewer 64bit on Kali OS.

While I was trying to install Teamviewer on my 64 bit Kali OS install,I ran into some missing dependencies. One of them was a i386 package, which cannot be installed on 64 bit unless multiple architecture support is enabled in your Install.
For this we first allow i386 to be installed as a multiarch.

root@kali:/home/dhakkan/Downloads# dpkg --add-architecture i386

Now we need to update our repositories.

root@kali:/home/dhakkan/Downloads# apt-get update

Now we can deploy i386 packages on 64 bit as multiarch

Now time to install the package.

dhakkan@kali:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_linux_x64.deb

You will get errors for unmet dependency which can be installed by using following command

dhakkan@kali:~/Downloads$ sudo apt-get install -f

and it should be good to go.
