    Howdy asamet003,
    Teamspeak 3 is not open source, therefore you can't find the installer in apt-get/softwarecenter nor PPA. Just install ts3 manually this way:

    Installation

    Download from teamspeak.com (Client 32 or 64bit)
    Example Filename: TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64-3.0.18.2.run (64bit)

    Now give executable rights and run the installation. The fastest way doing that is inside of your terminal.
    1. Open the terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and type:
    2. cd ~/Downloads
    3. chmod u+x TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64-3.0.18.2.run
    4. ./TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64-3.0.18.2.run
    The installation does start now.
    • Press ⏎ or SPACE to read through the licence information
    • Hit Q to finish this
    • At the question "Do you accept the license? (yes/no)" type "yes" or "y" and ⏎
    Now, there appears another folder in ~/Downloads/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/ with the startscript ts3client_runscript.sh.
    You can move this folder wherever you want. Start Teamspeak with the Terminal or in your File Browser.

    Start TS3

    Start TS3, the terminal way:

    • cd ~/Downloads/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/
    • ./ts3client_runscript.sh
    • (Teamspeask does start now)
    Start TS3, the file browser way:

    ts3_start_file_browser_arrows.png

    Create Applications Menu entry

    Create a file called teamspeak3.desktop inside of /usr/share/applications with this content, but edit the full path Exec/Icon:

    Code (Text):
    [Desktop Entry]
    Type=Application
    Name=Teamspeak 3 Client
    GenericName=Teamspeak
    Comment=Speak with friends
    Exec=/home/YOUR-USER-NAME/Downloads/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/ts3client_runscript.sh
    Icon=/home/YOUR-USER-NAME/Downloads/TeamSpeak3-Client-linux_amd64/styles/classic/logo-128x128.png
    Terminal=false
    X-MultipleArgs=false
    Categories=Network
    StartupNotify=true
    The result:
    start ts3_2.png

    That's it :)

    Optional: beautiful icon

    The icon provided from this teamspeak installer is really, really ugly.... You may want to download another one and reference that Icon= inside teamspeak3.desktop. For example this icon here:

    http://orig12.deviantart.net/ad6b/f/2012/124/c/3/teamspeak_by_maxumipsum70-d4yhm6c.png

    Result:

    ts3_icon_beautiful_2.png

    Help. Whenever I try to make the teamspeak.desktop file using "scratch" the file is deleted before I can save it to the directory /usr/share/applications
    How do I create the teamspeak.desktop file you mention in this tutorial? I'm using Loki.

    Found the answer:

    sudo scratch-text-editor in the /usr/share/applications folder.

    Thanks.

    Hi wekesa, i guess you must open scratch with sudo, to have the permission. Enter in your terminal: sudo scratch-text-editor , and then just create & save the file in /usr/share/applications. works? :)?
