It’s incredibly easy, considering what you had to do to install Teamviewer 7.

  1. Download Teamviewer 8 from their site.
  2. Become root (“su -“), change to the directory where you have downloaded the .rpm and just give this command:
    zypper install teamviewer_linux.rpm

    zypper will resolve all the needed dependencies, like this:

    The following NEW packages are going to be installed:
