TeamSpeak is voice conferencing software and the pioneer of other platforms such as Discord. In parallel to online games, you can use the current TeamSpeak 3 to communicate with friends via speech and text. If you also want to install TeamSpeak 3 on Linux, you have to accept a slightly longer installation depending on the distribution. We will describe the installation process for two of the most popular Linux distros step-by-step so that you are guaranteed to benefit from TeamSpeak.

Installation of Teamspeak on Ubuntu and Debian-based systems

Follow our step-by-step instructions or take a look at the brief instructions .

Note: All entries in the terminal are always carried out with [Enter] , which is why this step is not explicitly mentioned again for each individual step..

1st step:

image
In the first step you download the official client for TeamSpeak 3 from our heise download page: https://www.heise.de/download/product/teamspeak-54646/download. Please pay attention to the appropriate system architecture and click on "Download ". The download from the Teamspeak 3 client starts and is saved in the download directory. Tip: You can use the " uname -m " command in the terminal to find out whether your architecture is a 32- or 64-bit system - x86_64: The system runs on 64-bit; i386 / i486 / i586 / i686: The system runs under 32 bit.

2nd step:

The downloaded file must now be made executable. To do this, open a terminal, for example via [Alt] + [Ctrl] + [T] , and first navigate to the download folder with " cd ~ / Downloads / ".

3rd step:

image
Once there, make the file executable with the command " chmod u + x teamspeak3-Client-linux_ARCHITEKTUR-VERSION.run ". Replace ARCHITECTURE and VERSION with your appropriate values. In our instructions we use version 3.5.3 and a 64-bit system - so enter " chmod u + x teamspeak3-client-linux_amd64-3.5.3.run ". Note for Linux newbies: "chmod" changes the access rights of files and folders. In this case " chmod u + x " means that the owner (u) gets rights (+) to execute the file (x).

4th step:

image
Now you can start the TeamSpeak 3 client with the following command: " ./teamspeak3-client-linux_ARCHITEKTUR-VERSION.run ". In our case again " ./teamspeak3-client-linux_amd64-3.5.4.run ".

5th step:

image
In the next step, the TeamSpeak 3 client asks you to read the license. To do this, proceed as follows: To do this, proceed as follows: With [Enter] you will first see the license text You can navigate down using the arrow key or the [Image] key The display of the license text is closed with [Q] To the subsequent request " Please type y to accept, n otherwise " answer with " y ".

6th step:

image
TeamSpeak has now been installed under the following path " ~ / home / USER / Downloads / TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64 " if you installed it from the download directory . You can add an icon to the launcher so that you don't always have to laboriously start the file from the folder. It works as follows: Create the file " ~ / .local / share / applications / teamspeak3-client.desktop " with your favorite editor. We take nano - so we enter " sudo nano ~ / .local / share / applications / teamspeak3-client.desktop ".

7th step:

image
Paste the following content into the file. Adjust the corresponding entries for Exec and Icon. If you have installed TeamSpeak 3 in a different location, you must of course also change the path. Save the file with [Ctrl] + [O] and [Enter] and close it with [Ctrl] + [X]

8th step:

image
The Teamspeak 3 client is now displayed in the applications and can be started like any other application.

Installation of Teamspeak on Arch Linux

The installation is much easier under Arch Linux, since TeamSpeak3 is available as teamspeak3 in the community and is easy to install using Pacman. To do this, enter the following in the terminal:

pacman -S teamspeak3

That's it for Arch Linux, too. You can now use Teamspeak with your friends.

Quick Start Guide: Ubuntu and Debian-Based Systems

  1. Download the official client for TeamSpeak 3 from our heise download page: https://www.heise.de/download/product/teamspeak-54646/download
  2. Then open a terminal via [Alt ] + [Ctrl] + [T] .
  3. Now navigate to the download folder with " cd ~/Downloads/ ".
  4. Next, make the downloaded file executable with Replace Architecture and Version. " chmod u+x teamspeak3-Client-linux_ARCHITEKTUR-VERSION.run
  5. Start Teamspeak 3 with " ./teamspeak3-client-linux_ARCHITEKTUR-VERSION.run ".
  6. You need to read through the license agreement. To do this, proceed as follows: [Enter] shows you the text; scroll down with the arrow keys or the [Image] key; end the license display with [Q] ; Reply to " Please type y to accept, n otherwise " with " y ".
  7. Create a desktop shortcut to start Teamspeak directly as an application. To do this, enter " sudo nano ~/.local/share/applications/teamspeak3-client.desktop " in the terminal.
  8. Copy this content and change the corresponding entries for Exec and Icon. Save the file with [Ctrl] + [O] and [Enter] and close it with [Ctrl] + [X] .
  9. You can then find and start the program as usual under Applications.
