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

@gameslayer the comment from @ewuplse01 is useful and fixed it for me: pacman -S libutempter

Chrome remote desktop still thinks I haven't installed it even tho I have and has the extension installed on the Chrome.

I couldn't find the service chrome-remote-desktop.service`` and when I ran/usr/bin/crd --startI get this messageSeems like you haven't set this up yet. Try running: crd --setup.``

And this is my log

[sudo] password for corey: 
Adding user corey to group chrome-remote-desktop
Checking that working directory and session file are present
That would be /home/corey/.config/chrome-remote-desktop and

Now entering the editor to make the appropriate changes to your session file.
Press any key to continue...

If you want to set a default size for all clients, please add a
value with format [width]x[height] (e.g 1360x768) in file
Remember that this will affect all clients you use.
If you dont want a default size please leave it blank.
Now entering the editor to make the appropriate changes to
your Size file. Do not enter any comments to this file.
Press any key to continue...

This completes the setup.

Please remember that you will need to allow Chrome or Chromium
to act as a server for this to work at all.

To do that, open in your chrome or chromium browser
and follow the instructions. Clicking the computer will open
it in the browser window in default resolution.
For a more pleasant chromoting experience, just issue the command: crd --restart

Happy chromoting! :)

Still doesn't work

The latest update of chrome-remote-desktop (101.0.4951.26-1) depends on libutempter. After upgrading, I needed to install libutempter in order for it to work.

Upgraded to version 96.0.4664.9, please flag package as out-of-date if checksum verification fails or 404 error is thrown downloading sources.

@Steven_He: Changing the link to the latest deb package and skipping the checksum check is wrong, since the package version will no longer represent the actual version of CRD. One can always obtain the latest version number and SHA256 hash from the Packages file in the CRD repository. I wrote a simple script that fetches this information from upstream and then updates the PKGBUILD file:



data=($(curl -qs | grep '^Version\|^SHA256' | awk '{print $2}'))

echo "Updating $oldversion to $version"
sed -e "s,$oldversion,$version," -e "s,$oldchecksum,$checksum," -i PKGBUILD

Steven_He commented on 2021-11-08 09:23 (UTC)

Latest fix: Open PKGBUILD Change the URL under source into Change the first long number under sha256sums into SKIP And then you can run makepkg -si like normal

Link for deb file is broken again, gives a 404 error when you install it

After upgrading to the latest version I am having issues to run gnome.

I am connencting correctly but I receive an error saying "Oh no something goes wrong please logout".

I tried to downgrade but I have the same issue.

The isssue is only with gnome, openbox run smoothly.

Does anyone have the same behavior or it is just me?
