I ran into similar errors as other comments with not being able to connect after entering a PIN. In looking into log files I could see errors for :20 display. This appeared to be fixed by pacman -S xorg-xrandr. This got me partway - the Manjaro device showed 'started', but the only thing showing up in clients was an error due to 'Unable to contact settings server'. I discovered that contrary to the comment in ~/.chrome-remote-desktop-session I needed to uncomment both lines, so that I had:

export $(dbus-launch)
exec startxfce4

I was then able to see the Manjaro desktop on the remote client.

@mradi have you found the way to use it in :0 display ?

==> Validating source files with sha256sums... chrome-remote-desktop-71.0.3578.31.deb ... FAILED

Looks like the sha256sums are different.

I think it need the xorg-xrandr as dependency

Is there way to have CRD use the same xsession that's currently running instead of spinning up a new one?

I updated my graphics card to nvidia, and updated GDM, gnome. I followed the post to use display :0 as my chrome-remote-desktop and it worked fine. but when I recently tried it, again I started seeing errors like this, can someone help

systemctl --user start chrome-remote-desktop gets me this:

Jul 22 15:33:18 nwkr-desktop crd[762]: OAuth credentials are invalid - exiting.

Still, clicking "Enable remote connections" in CRD App works totally fine.

What went wrong?

Please, use version for package filename:

This package is not working in GNOME 3.28. I followed the instruction of this post but it is still not working.

Here's the config of .chrome-remote-desktop-session:

export $(dbus-launch)
# exec classic gnome-session --session gnome-classic
exec gnome-session
# exec gnome-session

Here's the output of crd --start:

Seems like you haven't activated CRD in your browser. Please do that before trying to run the server.

Here's the output of crd --restart:

The daemon is not currently running
[0604/203645.811960:INFO:remoting_user_session.cc(688)] Daemon process started in the background, logging to '/tmp/chrome_remote_desktop_20180604_203645_zOair2'

The log file /tmp/chrome_remote_desktop_20180604_203645_zOair2 says that:

Here's the output of systemctl status --user chrome-remote-desktop:

I also tried to Enable Remote Connection from the Chrome application, but I got the following message after setting 6-digit PIN:

Enabling remote connections for this computer...

After about 20 min it finally timed out and I got this:

Failed to start remote access service.

Who can help me out? Thank you so much!

The problem happens even if I run crd --start after a reboot. (note I did not systemctl enable --user chrome-remote-desktop.service)

I might be wrong, but I think this line in the log suggests that it actually successfully started the X server:

INFO:X server is active.

I'm suggesting that xorg-xrandr as a dependency because it seems to be using xrandr to test whether resizing is supported. Line 563 crashes with OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory if the executable does not exist.
