How to resolve AnyDesk issues in Ubuntu Linux

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.
