AnyDesk on Linux

In general AnyDesk should run on most Linux distributions but we officially support only the following ones:

- Debian 7 and newer
- Fedora 22 - 24
- Fedora 25 and 26 (Note: Xorg only, select this at the login screen)
- Mageia 5
- OpenSUSE 13.1, 13.2 and 42.1 LEAP
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 and 7
- CentOS 6 und 7
- SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12
- Ubuntu 14.04 and newer
- Ubuntu 17.10 (IMPORTANT: Xorg only, select this at the login screen)

If your Linux installation is not listed above, there is no guarantee that AnyDesk will work or work correctly and we can´t provide support for other distributions.
A Graphical Interface is needed. More information on the installation dependencies can be found here Installation.


Wayland-based desktop sessions are currently not working.

You can check if you use wayland by entering the following in the terminal: echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE
