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

To get this working on recent builds, you can:

  1. git clone the git URL above
  2. Edit PKGBUILD and...
  3. ...update pkgver to be "current"
  4. ...change source URL to "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.deb::${pkgname}_${pkgver}_amd64.deb"
  5. ...add this additional command with the other installs: install -Dm644 "${srcdir}/lib/systemd/system/${pkgname}@.service" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/systemd/system/${pkgname}@.service"
  6. run updpkgsums to update the package checksums
  7. run makepkg -s to build
  8. run pacman -U *.zst to install

.deb link is broken as new version is out

mchan commented on 2021-05-01 23:34

I was able to install the package after manually updating the version number + checksum. However, after finishing crd --setup, I'm seeing this failure when trying to setup remote access:

[mchan@arch ~]$ DISPLAY= /opt/google/chrome-remote-desktop/start-host --code="code here" --redirect-url="" --name=arch
Enter a PIN of at least six digits: 
Enter the same PIN again: 
[0502/] No net_fetcher for performing AIA chasing.
[0502/] Failed to read /home/mchan/.config/chrome-remote-desktop/host#d6194c68fcc7e79bb57401be603cb1cc.json
[0502/] No net_fetcher for performing AIA chasing.
[0502/] Failed to enable unit: Unit file chrome-remote-desktop@mchan.service does not exist.

Couldn't start host.

Any suggestions?

BTW. If you'd like to avoid a (default) 2.5 minute extra wait on shutdown as systemd waits for the chrome-desktop-service to shut down. DO NOT enable or start as a service when you install per these instructions:

To {enable,start} the service, issue the command: systemctl --user {enable,start} chrome-remote-desktop

At shutdown Systemd gets stuck and eventually times out waiting for this service to exit.

It works fine, but I don't understand why the luminosity of the screen (in the main device, not in the remote one) decreases by its own while I'm using it. Does anyone has the same problem?

nightuser commented on 2020-12-03 16:39

It gives 404 because Google keeps only the latest version of the package. Changing the link to latest isn't right: the version of the package and the actual version of the program wouldn't match. You can find the actual version using a command in PKGBUILD right above build() function. The commented one that starts with 'curl ...'.
