Teamspeak 3 on Elementary OS 0.3

Today I’m pushing out a lot of posts, this time about „Howto install Teamspeak 3 on Elementary OS 0.3“.

  1. Go to and grab the client either x86 (32bit) or amd64 (64bit)
  2. Open Terminal and go to the folder you downloaded the client to. On my PC it looked like this:
    benjamin@BensTux:~$ cd Downloads/
    benjamin@BensTux:~/Downloads$ chmod +x 
    benjamin@BensTux:~/Downloads$ ./

  5. Now create a new Desktop Entry at vim ~/.local/share/applications/teamspeak.desktop with the content
