Install AnyDesk on Ubuntu using flatpak

AnyDesk ubuntu flatpak

AnyDesk is a remote desktop sharing application like TeamViewer and Google Remote Desktop. I normally use Google Chrome Remote desk as it is completely free. TeamViewer is popuplar alternative, but if they found out you are using it more often, they will limit your session to 5 minutes, some times even less to force you pay for paid version.

AnyDesk available for Ubuntu in deb file. I don’t like installing .deb package as it run a background process on port 7070 or somthing like that. So i decided to go with flatpak version.

First install flatpak with command

sudo apt install flatpak

Add remote

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub

Now you can install AnyDesk with command

flatpak install flathub com.anydesk.Anydesk

flatpak install anydesk

To run AnyDesk, run

flatpak run com.anydesk.Anydesk

  • Anydesk runs on port 7070 so you can connect to a machine on your local network without going through their internet-based service. Just enter the remote desktop address as something like:

    Anyways, I’m glad I found this tip as Anydesk has stopped working on newer versions of at least Ubuntu and Mint due to outdated dependencies.
