If you're interested in testing and reporting your are welcome to visit

This version uses the debian/ubuntu package as base but the binary from the generic package, as some users are reporting problems with the former one.

@OJaksch: here is the output of ldd:

I currently don't have time to try vnc now, sorry.

@nicolehopperB8Y: Yes, I can reproduce this. First thing is that I'd to activate keyboard mapping to "Translate" in i3/anydesk to gain use of the shift+xx combination, but the control and alt keys are somewhat "dead". Maybe it's i3's own keyboard binding? Tried vnc (not as an alternative but for further investigation)?

Can you send me the output of 'ldd /usr/bin/anydesk' please?

@OJaksch: after update to the latest AUR version today, I was able to connect when using i3wm, but the keyboard is not working correctly: the modifier key doesn't work for me, i.e. when I press "shift + ," the remote side only saw "," not "<" as I expected. I can't save document by pressing Ctrl + s (which only generates s on the remote side). Can you reproduce this?

I'm very sorry but I can't reproduce this issue. I setup a fresh but very minimalistic arch vm with xorg-server, i3 (group), lightdm as display manager and anydesk. Within i3 I then can connect to and fully control my host and the same vice versa. I've no idea what's going wrong at your side...

OJaksch commented on 2018-11-10 12:58

@nicolehopperB8Y I'll try to help you i3 users for sure. Let me try to setup a arch vm with i3 to see what's going wrong and to identify potentially missing deps. I'm sure to get this baby going beneath i3 :) You can contact me directly in the meanwhile.

@OJaksch: I contacted them, and they replied as below:


thank you for your message!

AnyDesk needs a DE to work correctly. You may try to add our dependencies manually, so that it also may work with i3wm.

See here:

Freundliche Grüße / Kind regards

@OJaksch: Can you help me check if there are any missing dependencies in this AUR package? The names of those listed in anydesk support site look strange to me because archlinux doesn't have the same naming convention.

Very interesting that all bugs are related to i3. I'll try to reproduce this - but you can contact AnyDesk directly by also. They're very friendly and helpful.

hi, i also have the i3 issue with anydesk on my desktop and laptop too.

Tried the anydesk-test package, same. Tried with intel, nvidia, modeset drivers all same.

In gnome/kde it works fine, only i3 is "freezing" while trying to connect to a host with anydesk.

Seems like im missing some service that gnome/kde is running, how could i debug whats the cause of this ?

SilverMight commented on 2018-10-23 22:36

@nicolehopperB8Y also experiencing this on i3
