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.

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

Appears to have 404d as of today.

There is a missing dependency: xorg-xrandr. Without it, I got the following error: xdpyinfo: unable to open display ":20".

After installing it via pacman, CRD works for me.
