Package needs a new active maintainer. I'm no longer using ChromeOS devices or supporting their ecosystem after my laptop was bricked by an update.

Good luck.

It looks like it sufficient to add export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/$(id -u) to my .zshrc

A fully updated Arch with the latest cros-container-guest-tools-git still works for me on Chrome OS Version 86.0.4240.112 on the HP Chromebook X2

Well, this is suboptimal timing. Due to sudden hardware failure, my Pixelbook is out for repair (see: ). I was also having trouble with my Arch container on Chrome OS versions 86-87 before the failure occurred. I don't have the means right now to troubleshoot. I'm open to suggestions on how to proceed.

@duhdugg The latest Arch upgrade just broke crostini entirely. I can't figure out why.

xaseron@arch ~ % systemctl --user status Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory

It maybe related to logind. As the XDG/DBUS environment variables are not set.

@Xaseron Manual action requirements for pulseaudio are documented in cros-container-guest-tools.install and this is output to the console when the package is installed.

Xaseron commented on 2020-10-05 10:14

@duhdugg Pulseaudio does not work out of the box. I had to manually create a symlink to and daemon.conf to the skel directory. What would be the best way to fix this for new users?

@duhdugg Okay, got it, thanks. I thought it wasn't working because telegram desktop doesn't show the option to enable "native notifications" like it used to a few months ago.

duhdugg commented on 2020-09-11 12:06

@xalexis it's an on-demand dbus service, so it gets loaded when an application sends a notification through libnotify.

xalexis commented on 2020-09-11 11:55

@duhdugg not sure I can find any. However I cannot see the notification service listed in systemctl. However the file " /usr/lib/systemd/user/cros-notificationd.service" is in my system.

Let me know if there's any other way for me to share an error message, I'm still a bit noob in all this
