    Anydesk install in 20.04 64bit on a Pi 4

    I am a new user of Ubuntu (less than 24hrs in) and failed to install my first app on this OS. After some effort i have managed to install a 64bit OS on my Raspberry Pi 4 4GB using a Ubuntu Server 20.04 for Raspberry Pi image and installed lubuntu (sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop).
    In the OS, Settings -> About

    Processor: blank
    Graphics: llvmpipe (LLVM 9.0.1, 128 bits)
    Disk Capacity: Unknown
    OS Name: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
    OS Type: 64-bit

    Which i find confusing because i think it is an ARM processor but requires DEB install files right? So i head over to Anydesk but the Debian/Ubuntu/Mint (64bit)* file gives the error:
    Error: Wrong architecture 'amd64'

    So i head to the Anydesk for Raspberry Pi download** this time but get the error:
    Error: Wrong architecture 'armhf'

    I feel silly since there is something obvious i am missing. I just don't know what. I will need to install many apps and I'm stuck at my first hurdle. Any help would be appreciated.

    armhf arm hard-float is the name given to the Debian port for ARM 32-bit versions (someone please correct me if I am wrong).
    At least this link clearly mentions the same:
    The newer ARM hard-float (armhf) port supports newer, more powerful 32-bit devices using version 7 of the ARM architecture specification.
    If this is true, you can try a 32-bit deb file and see if it installs.

    I am not sure, but, should there be an ARM variant of the binary file?

    Yes, it should and that's the problem. 'i384' or 'amd64' packages cannot be installed in ARM devices.

    Yep, i found the i384 package for 32bit deb but that failed too. So if I'm reading this right, i need an arm64 package (64-bit ARM) for my 64bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 processor.
    I can only find amd64, armhf, and i386.

    Hmm....anyone know how to get the arm64 file?

    Have you tried adding the armhf architecture to dpkg?
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf

    Thanks deadflowr. So this is what i did:

    Code:
    wget -qO - https://keys.anydesk.com/repos/DEB-GPG-KEY | apt-key add -
    echo "deb http://deb.anydesk.com/ all main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/anydesk-stable.list
    apt update
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
    apt install anydesk
    Which seemed to go ok. Now it appears in my Show Applications (see pic) but nothing happens when i click on it. Did i break it? I am a Windows user after all

    Ok, I'm still looking into this issue and I'll reach out to Anydesk and others to solve it. But in the mean time, is there a workaround that can remote access my lubuntu system remotely using my android tablet and occasionally my Win10 PC? I need to be able to see the screen while the lubuntu system is headless.

    Re: Anydesk install in 20.04 64bit on a Pi 4

    Are you trying to install Anydesk on the raspberry PI 4? I am guessing that if you want the Raspberry Pi version of Anydesk on the Raspberry Pi then you would need to be running Raspbian OS on the Raspberry PI.

    The Debian version of Anydesk might be meant for Debian and Debian based OS running on an AMD64 compatible CPU. Which excludes the Raspberry PI with its ARM CPU. The Ubuntu server for the Raspberry PI is modified to run on the ARM cortex CPU. That is why deb files such as Lubuntu desktop can be installed. I cannot say for sure but Ubuntu server for Raspberry PI may have its own set of Ubuntu repositories with deb files modified not to reject being installed on an ARM cortex CPU.

    This might help to over come the problem. It is a PPA and it is uptodate for 20.04

    Regards..

    Ok grahammechanical. Not sure what that means but i gave it a go:


    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rpi-distro/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    It gave an error. Something about not having a Release file so its not safe and therefore disabled by default (see pic). I'm guessing that's not good.

    It feels like I'm forcing a red square block though a yellow circular hole while thinking: why doesn't this work!

    Re: Anydesk install in 20.04 64bit on a Pi 4

    The ppa has no packages.
    Probably best to disable it.

    You can try running the application's command to launch from a terminal
    that should tell something about what's happening.
    For anydesk that is the command
    Code:
    anydesk
    or if needed you can run the full file path name
    Code:
    /usr/bin/anydesk
