If you're interested in testing and reporting your are welcome to visit

This version uses the debian/ubuntu package as base but the binary from the generic package, as some users are reporting problems with the former one.

Have the same problem with blank unresponding windows on incoming connections. The process just hangs and eats CPU. Flatpak version doesn't start at all. Solution from @2dorf4u by downgrading pango to 1:1.43.0-2 solved the problem. The system is Manjaro Kernel 5.3.7 KDE 5.17.1

I'm still using the @2dorf4u's solution since that's the only way to get AnyDesk working without the black screen bug.

I was having the same problem with the empty/frozen incoming session window.

I did a bit of testing based on the hints by @johannvonperfect below and found that the problem is caused by pango, starting from version 1:1.44-1.

I was able to fix it by downgrading pango to 1:1.43.0-2.

I get the same "empty window problem" that everyone else is getting. Using KDE.

Tried the most recent version, doesn't work on me either, same empty windwow error. Tried the flatpak: it works. May be useful to track what dependency may be missing.

being a GTK incomparability would explain why the flatpak version works and the native one does not. Hopefully anydesk will fix this upstream

@erkana @galvez_65 Having the same problem with cinnamon, new window on the remote site but empty. However LXQT does not have such problem. So I suspect there is something with GTK based environments.

Tried to send message to support twice but never replied...

I am using Gnome with X11 (fresh install) and when incoming connection I have the same problem described by galvez_65, there is a new window open for confirmation but it's empty.

Still having issues. Piggybacking on galvez_65 re: dependencies - I am certainly not advanced enough to know what dependencies are doing what, but going through the dependencies for this package, the only dependencies that I see that have been updated in July 2019 or later are glib2 (7.26.19 - flagged out-of-date 8.21.19), glibc (7.23.19 - flagged-out-of-date 8.1.19), and pango (8.14.19, but with frequent updates including beginning of August).

I don't think the issue is specifically with the version number, it's likely some library incompatibility because the flatpak version works as expected.
