I am new to linux and have just started Zorin os. It is for my kids to use and play with. I need to install anydesk to help them out with troubleshoot or login because I do not give them the password. But I could not get anydesk to auto boot up. With windows, anydesk will autoboot, and I can easily login, key in password and let them use. With zorin, I must login first, then only go to Internet tab and select Anydesk. How to make anydesk auto boot? Thank you.

Manage to get it autorun?

If not, you can try to use the command to enable autorun.
CODE
sudo systemctl enable anydesk.service

I managed to get it to auto boot, following youtube guide. However, the difference between anydesk on windows and anydesk on zorin is,
(A) With windows 10, I do not have to login to a windows user account, anydesk will still connect to the internet, and I can therefore remote login, type in my windows user account password, sign in and start using windows 10.

(B) With zorin, anydesk will NOT auto connect to wifi, until I have login into a user account. Therefore, I must let zorin autologin to a user account first, in order for anydesk to auto boot up, run and connect to wifi. In other words, if I do not let zorin autologin to my user account, anydesk will not work.

But what I needed is, have anydesk boot up, connected, let me login remotely and type the user account password. So for this, I have not managed to get it working.
