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.

I use ratpoison as window manager and no problem.

AnyDesk turns white and cpu usage keeps increasing when using this package in i3wm, haven't tested in another wm/de though.

@OJaksch thank you! At the end I used a silly workaround. I minimized the program with AllTray and hid AnyDesk's original icon so I would only get the AllTray one. However, AnyDesk was not working if the screen was locked (using light-locker). Is this normal?

@churro: I'm very sorry, but this is not my responsibility.

But feel free to contact AnyDesk directly at - they're very friendly and helpful.

@SonicoXD: Sure, any comments and questions are welcome. And yes, the application should (in my opinion) run in the background, visible through systray's symbol. But it seems you're right: If I close (not quit) the application it vanishes after a few seconds from systray and task list.

Maybe the answer lies here: "Exit: Closes the current session. If installed, AnyDesk will still be running on the machine. This is indicated by the tray icon. If not installed (no tray icon), closing the last AnyDesk window will terminate AnyDesk and your machine will not be online in the AnyDesk network."

I'll have a look into this as my PKGBUILD needs some love (ie autostart has changed) - and this could be the exact solution for you.

the application installed fine and seems to run fine. However, it doesn't mesh well with my dark qt theme. Is there anyway to set it so it launches with a white theme to avoid this problem?

Sorry, not sure if I should ask this here. I suspect that when closing the main window, the service should keep running. Is there any way to do this? And also to start AnyDesk on boot?

@Tah9phee: Thanks for the kind words. You (and all others) are always welcome!

@OJaksch: thank you! This was what I suspected from the research I was able to do, and your explanation here is great in helping me on the path to learning more and more about the AUR and it's workings. Thanks for taking the time to reply.. installing! And thank you for your maintenance here - much appreciated.

@Tah9phee: Have a look at Read and understand how an AUR package is built - then you'll know that commands executed within build process are running below the path of ${BUILDDIR}. This ensures that ie 'rm -rf etc/' removes the given path there. Sure, I could use 'rm -rf ${pkgdir}/etc/' but this would remove the real /etc/ in case of malfunction/typo/emptyness of ${pkgdir} ;)
