Bravo on this package, makes installing a breeze. 2 questions: is there a big resource difference between autostarting via systemctl --user enable chrome-remote-desktop.service or adding crd to the startup applications? 2nd: on Windows there is a clear notification that the desktop is being accessed/actions can be seen on the target computer screen, but not on Linux (there is zero indication that another computer is accessing the target machine). Anyone come up with a way to tell if your computer is being accessed via crd?

Done. What a messy update. Thanks for alpha and beta testing, spider-mario and Zeroedout.

Also, I think the new line:
echo "export $(dbus-launch)" >> ...

should use single quotes, not double quotes.

MD5sum failed on crd.
crd ... FAILED

I am trying to install the crd and i am seeing the following error,

does anyone know how i can fix this?

The package xorg-xrandr is installed and the version is 1.5.0-1

PSA: Chrome Remote Desktop is not part of the Google Chrome package. The CRD versions lag behind.

Someone please create an openrc package of this!

If anyone is having trouble with dbus and KDE with a message like this (FYI @grayjoc):

dbus-update-activation-environment: error: unable to connect to D-Bus: Using X11 for dbus-daemon autolaunch was disabled at compile time, set your DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS instead
startkde: Could not sync environment to dbus.

You have to add "export $(dbus-launch)" before startkde in ~/.chrome-remote-desktop-session:

# You will have to uncomment one of the following lines for CRD to work
# Remove the # and select ctrl-X to finish.
export $(dbus-launch)
exec /usr/bin/startkde
# exec /usr/bin/openbox-session
# exec /usr/bin/openbox-kde-session

And that's it, you will see your desktop like a boss! :D
