2 Ways to Install AnyDesk on Oracle Linux 8 – Linux Shout | Hot Mobile Press

Learn how to add repository to install AnyDesk on Oracle Linux 8 to connect and support remote systems using internet.

AnyDesk is freemium software, just like Teamviewer, that allows users to access remote computers and mobile devices for maintenance purposes. It allows access to computers or servers from anywhere in the world via the Internet.

The software is available for the operating systems Windows, macOS, Linux as well as iOS and Android. Data is transmitted using the TLS 1.2 (Transport Layer Security) encryption standard. This technology is recommended by the Federal Office for Information Security.

Various license models are available for commercial users, but private use of the software is free of charge.

Some key features:

⇒ Remote access and control
⇒ IT support and remote maintenance
⇒ Webinars and screen sharing
Home office and file transfer

The software allows you to share screens and access a local computer at home or in the office at any time. As a company, on the other hand, IT staff can use it to offer remote maintenance or process support requests without having to be on site with your customers.

It is also possible to transfer files from the office to the private computer and vice versa. A remote printer is also integrated, which enables documents to be printed out directly at the access point.

Steps to install AnyDesk on Oracle Linux 8

There are two ways to install AnyDesk on Oracle Linux 8, one using the official repository of this tool and the other using its executable binary. Here we explain how to use both.

#1. Method with repository:

1. Add the AnyDesk repository

Open your command terminal on Oracle Linux 8 and then add the AnyDesk repository with the specified command block. Copy and paste the entire block into your terminal and press the Enter Button. The reason for adding the repo is – the packages to install AnyDesk cannot be downloaded using the default Oracle Base or AppStream repositories.

sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/anydesk.repo<<EOF
[anydesk]
name=AnyDesk CentOS - stable
baseurl=http://rpm.anydesk.com/centos/8/x86_64/
gpgcheck=1
repo_gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://keys.anydesk.com/repos/RPM-GPG-KEY
EOF

2. Update your Linux

After adding the repository, run the system update command on your Oracle Linux 8 so that the package manager index cache can be updated and also installed if there is a latest update available for the system.

sudo dnf update -y

3. Install AnyDesk on Oracle Linux 8

Now use the system’s default package manager i.e. DNF and install the latest version of AnyDesk available for Linux just like any other software.

sudo dnf install anydesk

4. Download the AnyDesk Linux binary

Those interested in installing AnyDesk but using the binary will need to download it directly from or use its website Shortcut.

5. Install this remote control tool

Once you are sure that the AnyDesk RPM binary is on your system, open your command terminal and switch to Downloads directory first. Because things that we download with the browser go in.

cd Downloads

To see if the binary exists or not:

ls

Install right away

sudo dnf install ./anydesk-*.el8.x86_64.rpm

6. Run AnyDesk to access a remote system

Finally, we can launch this Teamviewer alternative to access our remote computer or mobile system over the Internet. Go to the application launcher and search for AnyDesk there.

7. How to update

If you want to update AnyDesk in the future, it’s enough for users who used the repository method to run the system update and upgrade. However, users who used binaries will need to download the latest version manually to install it using the command shown in this tutorial.

sudo dnf update && sudo dnf upgrade

8. Uninstall or remove AnyDesk – Oracle Linux 8
