@RemoteAdmin No, seems that you're right. Either I missed that or it's a fairly new dep. Will check and complete that in pkgbuild. Thanks for reporting this!

EDIT: fixed :)

Correct me if I'm wrong but shouldn't "libxtst" be a dependency?

At least the binary is requiring it:

readelf -d /usr/bin/anydesk

0x0000000000000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: []

@maximevince Commented and forwarded to Let's see what they will say.

Answer from anydesk:

Wayland is not supported. Wayland has no possibility in it's protocol to take the screen for now. Therefore we had to program an own screen grabber for every desktop and then ask the user for permission (especially gnome3 makes it difficult). AnyDesk and Wayland is starting through XWayland, but as soon as a session is started or tapped, there will used many X11 libraries that XWayland doesn't support (MIT-SHM for example).

If you are interested in AnyDesk under Wayland, I ask you to send a mail to the Wayland devs (the more, the better; we have already sent one) so a unified capture interface would be installed in Wayland (here, the devs then just have to consider security measures). -- Wayland wird von uns nicht unterstützt. Wayland hat im Protokoll keine Möglichkeit vorgesehen das Bild abzugreiffen und dies offengelassen, wie die Compositors das Implementieren. Daher müssten wir für jeden Desktop ein eigenes Screen Grab Programm schreiben und dies teilweile vom Nutzer erst autorisieren lassen (und gerade GNOME 3 macht es einem hier nicht leicht). AnyDesk startet und Wayland zwar, da XWayland vorgeschalten wird, aber sobald eine sitzung gestartet oder abgegriffen wird werden viele X11 Libraries genutzt, die XWayland nicht unterstützt (MIT-SHM z.B.).

Falls Sie Interesse an AnyDesk unter Wayland haben, bitte ich sie, den Wayland devs eine Mail zu schicken (je mehr, umso besser, wir haben auch schon eine abgesetzt), damit eine einheitliche Capture Schnittstelle in Wayland eingebaut wird (hier müssen sich die Devs dann eben ggf. Sicherheitsmaßnahmen überlegen).

AnyDesk closing immediately after connecting (e.g. to Win7 host) seems to be cause by some Wayland issue. Switching to Xorg fixes the problem for me.

I got the following error when trying to use anydesk:
sh: lsb_release: command not found

The fix was to install the package `lsb-release`. Maybe it should be added to the list of dependencies?

Hi, I install anydesk by `makepkg -si`. But anydesk has no response when I create new connection. There is only a anydesk icon in my toolbar, I can not seed any window about anydesk.
I have solved it. It's because of my driver problem.

@ltcmdrdata i've got the same problem here on 2 manjaro-pcs and when tested on a VM. No matter if remote pc is linux or windows. also, when trying to connect to a linux-pc from a windows one, the same behaviour occurs.
Didn't find anything in the anydesk-forums though...

> Any idea why I can not connect to remote client (Windows 7 with anydesk 3.1.1)?
No, not yet, but I'm sure that this is a Windows-thing with it's firewall profiles. Maybe yours has "public" active and is blocking incoming packets therefore?

Any idea why I can not connect to remote client (Windows 7 with anydesk 3.1.1)? The client works perfect (I can connect to it from an anydesk Windows Host).

On my 2 Arch Linux computer (desktop and notebook), I can not connect to any other host. Anydesk starts and shows the connection screen. Whe I enter the ID of the remote computer, the connections starts and asks for password. When I enter it, the window disappears and nothing happens. At the remote computer the anydesk windows shows up and it seems that I am connect. When I try it several times, the window on the remote computer shows several connections, but I do not get any window of the remote computer on my desktop.
I do not get any error logs at console or syslog...

Fixed this morning. Please report if Gnome still doesn't feel happy.
Thanks for pointing this out.

EDIT: I contacted anydesk: This will be fixed in the next release by anydesk itself. Great!
