I have followed the two fixes suggested in question 118662.

In my case, Anydesk does not start up after installation on a PI4, Raspberry OS 64bit. - I click on the icon, a time glass replace the cursor for a couple of seconds, then ..nothing.

re installation

64bit Raspberry Pi OS not yet supported by AnyDesk. https://support.anydesk.com/knowledge/anydesk-for-linux-raspberry-pi-freebsd


You can use arch-test to check supported architectures. This needs to be installed from the repository sudo apt install arch-test. This runs a number of programs for different architectures.

Raspberry Pi OS -64 bit uses the standard Debian repositories which should have an arm64 version.

I have never used AnyDesk, but if it wanted to I would use the recommended procedure http://deb.anydesk.com/howto.html

add repository key to Trusted software providers list

wget -qO - https://keys.anydesk.com/repos/DEB-GPG-KEY | apt-key add -

and add "deb http://deb.anydesk.com/ all main" to your sources list.
