Thanks @frealgagu for packaging this, @nightuser for the existing session patch and @Brinsky for the instructions.

I've compiled both instructions with screenshots and added it to my blog if anyone is having issues with the install. Otherwise, just follow the instructions in the comments by @Brinsky from 2019-12-06 13:58.

Here's how I got this working with the new web app (

  1. Build and install the package
  2. run crd --setup
  3. (Optional) Configure execution of your preferred window manager in ~/.chrome-remote-desktop-session
  4. Go to
  5. Click "next" and "authorize" through each instruction
  6. Copy/paste and run the provided "Debian" command, which should look like the following: DISPLAY= /opt/google/chrome-remote-desktop/start-host --code="<UNIQUE_CODE>" --redirect-url="<>" --name=
  7. Set up a name and PIN
  8. Wait for successful output containing "Host ready to receive connections."
  9. Run crd --start

It gives 404 because Google keeps only the latest version of the package. Changing the link to latest isn't right: the version of the package and the actual version of the program wouldn't match. You can find the actual version using a command in PKGBUILD right above build() function. The commented one that starts with 'curl ...'.

The source download fails with a 404. Please update the package.

The source download fails with a 404 at the moment, but that may be just transient.

The Beta channel has been updated to 87.0.4280.47 for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Has 87.0.4280.27 been deleted?

The current version isn't supported anymore, and returns a 404, please update to 87.0.4280.27 (63afef7bb034af9ea1b18a7026cce9f128b63339024e19f69dcf8bc87696027f)

Gives 404 when attempting to download the package (looks like source has moved).
