    If you actually installed it then it can be searched for and opened like any other installed software. Please edit your question and describe what you did to install and what happened when you tried to run it? I just installed (`.deb from Anydesk website) and it works fine. – user589808 Mar 15 '17 at 13:11
  • Seems like a question for anydesk support. – user535733 Mar 15 '17 at 13:11

Through GUI:

Through CLI:

  • sudo dpkg -i anydesk_2.9.4-1_amd64.deb

  • Install AnyDesk via Ubuntu software center. (Simply open your 'Downloads' folder, right click on anydesk_2.9.4-1_amd64.deb choose Open With Software Install. Enter your password when it prompted then wait for the AnyDesk installation process to complete.)

    It's better to use apt so that possible dependencies get resolved automatically : sudo apt install ./anydesk_2.9.4-1_amd64.deb – dessert Sep 7 '17 at 7:25

Sometimes it does not allow installation from GUI. You can follow below commands:

wget https://download.anydesk.com/linux/anydesk_2.9.6-1_amd64.deb 
sudo dpkg -i https://download.anydesk.com/linux/anydesk_2.9.6-1_amd64.deb

Now go to that folder in your terminal and use

sudo apt install ./anydesk_2.9.6-1_amd64.deb

If you have already installed anydesk and want to un-install use bellow command:

sudo apt-get --purge remove anydesk
