Install AnyDesk on AlmaLinux 8

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install AnyDesk on AlmaLinux 8. For those of you who didn’t know, AnyDesk is a remote desktop application designed to be reliable and fast. It helps us to easily and quickly establish a connection between computers to remotely access and share the screen. AnyDesk is available for Linux, FreeBSD, Raspberry Pi, Windows, Chrome OS, macOS, Android, and iOS.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the AnyDesk remote desktop application on an AlmaLinux 8. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: AlmaLinux 8, CentOS, and Rocky Linux 8.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
