@apepa you still need to download and install a package (.deb). This package downloads and converts to pacman for archlinux installation. Please don't flag this as outdated because is not.

No use installing the package, it just tells you the app is no longer supported and to use the new web app instead.

[Solved] Giving support via Incognito mode or disable Ublock Origin works well .

Problem: Giving support connected but no remote desktop appears. I have no problem getting support.

Any suggestion, will be appreciated.

I can confirm @zhtlancer solution works, no need to relogin/reboot. Just make that file, then crd --start will work.

@zhtlancer is right. I have solved daemon start by creating a file chrome-remote-desktop with that content in /etc/pam.d/

Thank you very much.

hi all, I have a similar problem as osjacky430

on "crd --restart" I get:

The daemon is not currently running [0511/] Daemon process started in the background, logging to '/tmp/chrome_remote_desktop_20190511_180613_NJ17ss' [0511/] Failed to read from message pipe. Please check log to determine host status.

it looks like no matter what I try to start the service CRD status is always "stopped".

Hi, I can't get the crd to enable remote connection, connect to others or share this computer by enter the code do work, but when I pressed enable remote connection, and enter the PIN number, my computer's name do show up in the list, but just appear to be offline.


crd --start gives me `[0328/] Daemon process started in the background, logging to '/tmp/chrome_remote_desktop_20190328_210609_g6ApDa'] Failed to read from message pipe. Please check log to determine host status.

Log file: /tmp/chrome_remote_desktop_20190328_210609_g6ApDa`

But I got permission denied] [PAM] Account check: Authentication failure

I've done what @zhtlancer said, but the issue still persists.

If anyone wants to use the current xsession (display: 0) you can follow the answer here (from MDMower) I also had to add an extra pam rule to get it working, like @zhtlancer said

Recent update of PAM subsystem caused failing start of chrome-remote-desktop on my system. Add an extra pam rule for chrome-remote-desktop fixed it. This should be included in the package. Create "/etc/pam.d/chrome-remote-desktop" with following content:

auth        required
account     required
password    required
session     required

This package works fine on machines where I've already set up sharing. However, the web app won't let me share from new machines. It keeps prompting me to install the host package and having me download the .deb file, even through I have already installed this package from AUR.

How do I convince the web app that I have installed this already so that it can generate a host#...json file for me? (Really frustrating that I have to go through this clunky web app just to generate a single file, but that's how Google seems to have designed it.)

systemctl --user enable chrome-remote-desktop
