Teamspeak 3 not running

Good evening, good morning,

I speak French so my English is not perfect.

I have been trying to download Teamspeak 3 for several hours.
Being new to linux I started looking for discussions on the internet but despite the good number of sites dealing with the subject nothing worked.

I am in Linux on Steam OS so Debian.
I started by downloading the .run from the teamspeak 3 website in 64bit.
After that I turned it into an executable in my console.
At runtime, it asks me to accept their conditions of use etc, which went very well! So he downloads me a file which is Teamspeak in itself.
I watch several tutorials and according to them you have to run

What I did first in my file explorer and then in my terminal with this command because it didn’t work:


And here is what my terminal responds:

Obviously nothing opens.

I researched the internet, tried the advice they gave, searched almost every site, but nothing worked.

I need Teamspeak so it’s pretty important :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Thank you in advance for all your answers.
Have a good day / evening!

Is the library libdbus-1-3 installed on your machine? It look like it’s not.

Good evening,
How could I verify this?

I don’t know the SteamOS to be honest but since it’s based on Debian, please try:

sudo apt-get install libdbus-1-3

(or without sudo)

He tells me that libdbus-1-3 is already the most recent version available.

Hmm weird, please try to update all libraries on the server.

sudo apt-get upgrade

Btw. here’s a list of required packages for QT5.

I think I can’t help you solving this, sorry.

Please show us the result of ldd from within your TS folder.

Hmm - old version of freetype maybe?

Shouldn’t apt-get upgrade update all packages/libs?
(just asking, I’m not 100% sure)

Usually, but I don’t know if steam OS has a custom freetype version or something. Bit of an odd one.

Hmm maybe… let’s wait for his response.
Maybe he hasn’t run the upgrade cmd yet.

Im wondering about this anyway: no version information available

@Faux @Škýl @davinciTS

Good morning all !
Please give as much importance to the problem.
I did the upgrade but everything was good, 0 updated, 0 newly installed.

Not super sure what to suggest. Are you on the latest Steam OS (i don’t know if it does dist-upgrade or what). I’d like to see what

dpkg -l | grep freetype

gives. Anyone else have experience with Steam OS?
