AnyDesk runs in Ubuntu startup and I couldn't find any setting in order to disable it in its settings. How can I disable AnyDesk autostart?

I've found the following approach to disable the AnyDesk service. In this way, you can run it manually.

systemctl disable anydesk.service

You can also check its service status:

systemctl status anydesk

nb: you might want to stop it first (or after) if it is running:

service anydesk stop

go to the .anydesk/ path(for example: mine is /home/pyruz/.anydesk), find autostart.conf and delete it. just this.

anydesk version: 6.1.1 , ubuntu version: 22.04 LTS
