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

Seconding @oofnik, dependency on python2-psutil should be replaced with python-psutil. Otherwise ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'psutil' when crd is run.

Workaround of course is to install the new dependency.

Same as luluprat, version 85.0.4183.14 leads to a 404. Changing the version to 85.0.4183.39 and the sha256 sum to fb6afa2f771110a369ddffa39be968e7b50b0dba26093b6ca907c8f55de1317b works.

Hi, so i tried generating a code several times, then I changed to Arcolinux. the I noticed that I had to un-comment both the lines in .chrome-remote-desktop. Here is the link to the file.

When trying to install from Package Manager I'm getting the following error: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting... Failed to build chrome-remote-desktop

I think python-psutil should be listed as a dependency now that the CRD script has been refactored to use Python 3.

@ayushdutta321 weird. I created an access code right now on the "remote support" tab that I said before. I don't understand why it's not working there.

I honestly don't know what may be causing the problem. Sorry. Have you tried to reinstall the package?

ayushdutta321 commented on 2020-06-25 06:33

@gphillippi Yeah i have the chrome remote desktop extension installed. I can connect to my friends pc using his generated code but I am unable to generate my own code. Its prompting me to download a .deb file. No terminal is not necessary

gphilippi commented on 2020-06-19 15:28

@ayushdutta321 to do this, I usually use the link "" and access the "remote support" tab. Remember to install the remote chrome desktop extension in the chrome browser.

You need a command line to do it?

I have successfully started crd using crd --start after following steps by @victorbrca and I am also able to connect to the pc but only when both of the pc has the same gmail account signed it.

How to generate the crd remote support code and access the pc from any pc ?
