am trying to install any desk:arm-hf in Ubuntu 20.10 arm64 machine.

because of cross platform I used dpkg for installation.

> > pi@pi-desktop:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg --force architecture -i anydesk_6.0.1-1_armhf.deb Selecting previously unselected package
> anydesk:armhf. (Reading database ... 136205 files and directories

but when i tried to open through terminal it shows an error

anydesk: error while loading shared libraries: libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

so I tried to install libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0 using aptitiude

pi@pi-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0
[sudo] password for pi: 
Reading package lists... Done

E: Unable to locate package libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0'

after refering some forum i tried this

pi@pi-desktop:~$ apt-file list libpolkit-gobject-1-0
libpolkit-gobject-1-0: /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0
libpolkit-gobject-1-0: /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0.0.0
libpolkit-gobject-1-0: /usr/share/doc/libpolkit-gobject-1-0/changelog.Debian.gz
libpolkit-gobject-1-0: /usr/share/doc/libpolkit-gobject-1-0/copyright

still am getting same error.how to install libpolkit-gobject-1.so.0 or how to make anydesk to work

  • armhf and arm64 are completely different infras. It's looking for the armhf files, NOT the version in your default OS. You can check this by running ldd $(which anydesk) and see what library versions it's actually looking for - chances are it's looking for armhf versions of the so and NOT the arm64 versions.
