Raw steps to build

  • Prepare your Rust development env and C++ build env

  • Install vcpkg, and set VCPKG_ROOT env variable correctly

    • Windows: vcpkg install libvpx:x64-windows-static libyuv:x64-windows-static opus:x64-windows-static
    • Linux/MacOS: vcpkg install libvpx libyuv opus
  • run cargo run

How to build on Linux

Ubuntu 18 (Debian 10)

sudo apt install -y g++ gcc git curl wget nasm yasm libgtk-3-dev clang libxcb-randr0-dev libxdo-dev libxfixes-dev libxcb-shape0-dev libxcb-xfixes0-dev libasound2-dev libpulse-dev cmake

Fedora 28 (CentOS 8)

sudo yum -y install gcc-c++ git curl wget nasm yasm gcc gtk3-devel clang libxcb-devel libxdo-devel libXfixes-devel pulseaudio-libs-devel cmake alsa-lib-devel

Arch (Manjaro)

sudo pacman -Syu --needed unzip git cmake gcc curl wget yasm nasm zip make pkg-config clang gtk3 xdotool libxcb libxfixes alsa-lib pulseaudio

Install vcpkg

git clone
cd vcpkg
git checkout 2021.12.01
cd ..
export VCPKG_ROOT=$HOME/vcpkg
vcpkg/vcpkg install libvpx libyuv opus

Fix libvpx (For Fedora)

cd vcpkg/buildtrees/libvpx/src
cd *
sed -i 's/CFLAGS+=-I/CFLAGS+=-fPIC -I/g' Makefile
sed -i 's/CXXFLAGS+=-I/CXXFLAGS+=-fPIC -I/g' Makefile
cp libvpx.a $HOME/vcpkg/installed/x64-linux/lib/


curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf | sh
source $HOME/.cargo/env
git clone
cd rustdesk
mkdir -p target/debug
mv target/debug
VCPKG_ROOT=$HOME/vcpkg cargo run

Change Wayland to X11 (Xorg)

RustDesk does not support Wayland. Check this to configuring Xorg as the default GNOME session.
