@1ace: I just transferred the package to you.

@DaveB: I'm willing to adopt this package if you don't want to maintain it anymore :)

On top of the other comments people already posted, the current makedepends=('nano') is incorrect as well: the current script uses nano as runtime, not during the build, so it would be a normal depends, but it shouldn't enforce nano anyway, but instead use $EDITOR, thus dropping nano from any kind of depends.

@starain I forked your gist, added some deps and also enforced suid bit to user only. For anyone having issues, try using this gist in place of /opt/google/chrome-remote-desktop/chrome-remote-desktop: https://gist.github.com/tonylambiris/d9b37f224b166a823eb8115911114019

You will just have to change DEFAULT_SIZES to your regular resolution you run X at. You may also have to change FIRST_X_DISPLAY_NUMBER to share your desktop like you normally would want to in a remote pc session. I found this by running sudo xdpyinfo | head -3 (running with sudo is intentional).

Lastly, I matched .config/chrome-remote-desktop/Size to reflect the resolution set in DEFAULT_SIZES. This file literally is 1 line with 3840x2160 in it. I believe that's everything to get you up and running.

Got it work, not sure how to make it to AUR, here is the patch: https://gist.github.com/starain/d4a413826cd957384a2bbc744c4325c5

Got the latest one from https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/chrome-remote-desktop_current_amd64.deb, the actual md5sum is a933a425339b7d5da9dcb71fca15611f. Replaced this on the PKGBUILD. Installed ok, but got the following error when try crd --start:

/opt/google/chrome-remote-desktop/user-session not installed setuid root. Host must be started by administrator.

And this when tried with sudo:

Please run this as a normal user!

Anyone has updated PKGINFO?

@ben0mega

The problem won't be so much the AUR workflow, that's relatively easy to get into, but the new version has additional security features which I couldn't get to work. Probably a missing dependency or something, but I couldn't find it.
