    We dont do detailed tutorials on request here sorry - we expect BackTrack users to be able to work things out with minimal assistance from others, seeing as it is an penetration testing distribution, and penetration testing requires advanced skills.

    Thats a Windows application, so you can try installing it using Wine (Google it), or you can try and find an alternate program that does the same thing.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    Really dude?? TRY HARDER! This is not meant to be offensive....More of a drill sergeant style of 'encouragement', but this is a very simple process to accomplish and shouldn't require a 'detailed' tutorial. I accomplished the task using three commands. You'll definitely want to find yourself a ubuntu/debian linux command reference or cheat sheet. Should help get you started. Anyway here is how

    Code:
    root@bt:~# wget http://www.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_linux.deb
    root@bt:~# dpkg -i teamviewer_linux.deb
    root@bt:~# teamviewer5
    Also I feel VNC tends to work better in linux than teamviewer. It's only real advantage is NAT traversal through teamviewers weird routing system, and not needing to open ports anywhere.

    teamviewer is already installed in Backtrack R2 ... can't you at lease search if the program is installed or try apt-get before opening a thread ?
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
    Do not take a look at the: Forum Rules !

    This post is pretty much spam, but I had to laugh at iproute's suggestion of a linux cheat sheet because I bought this recently: ThinkGeek :: Linux Cheat Shirt

    It's printed upside down so you can just look down at the shirt and read commands ... haha

    I did actually begin my linux trek with backtrack however, so it is definitely possible. It's just non automated ubuntu really
