How to resolve AnyDesk issues in Ubuntu Linux

Table of Contents

Case #

You install Anydesk latest version in Ubuntu Linux 21.10 but the software application cannot start.

Solution #

In most cases, the following two tasks will resolve the issue and let you launch Anydesk latest version successfully on your Ubuntu Linux machine:

  1. Install the libpangox-1.0.0 component by running following command: sudo apt install libpangox-1.0.0
  2. If the error you are getting is related to the Wayland software components you can try to disable Wayland by editing a configuration file. Wayland is intended as a simpler replacement for X, easier to develop and maintain. GNOME and KDE are expected to be ported to it. To disable Wayland, edit file /etc/gdm3/custom.conf, track WaylandEnable=true parameter and set it to WaylandEnable=false.
