@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 Please don't flag this as outdated because is not.

@Bakasura It's nice but I'm not sure what is the expected behavior for most users. Do you think you want to use always the active session or you want to open a new session instead? I think chrome-remote-desktop developers use the :20 in order to not affect the current session

@Bakasura nice!

Unable to install due to: Validating source files with ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! Failed to build chrome-remote-desktop

Any help with this? I've read the other comments that say this but I'm new and don't understand what is happening. I install Manjaro for the first time yesterday. Thanks for any help!!

@Brinsky It works, thanks a lot.

/usr/bin/crd launches nano. I suggest that either nano be made a dependency for this package or crd be patched to use the $EDITOR variable and check for the $EDITOR's existence before running it.

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

Thanks a lot! it works great after some settings. I'll write down the steps for any newbie.
- build and install the package.
- run crd --setup.
- edit /home/user/.chrome-remote-desktop-session (remove the "#" to enable exec DE).
- run crd --restart.
