I have "elementary OS 0.3.1 Freya 32-bit". I tried to deploy Chrome Remote Desktop according to this manual, but unsuccessfully. I can connect just using green "Share" button and one-time access code, but I cannot connect via "My Computers" section in Chrome Remote Desktop.

If I try to connect, I receive the following error:

"The remote computer is not responding to connection requests. Please verify that it is online and try again."

Can you help me?

More details: File ~/.chrome-remote-desktop-session contains
exec /usr/sbin/lightdm-session "gnome-session --session=pantheon"

  • Does the Pantheon session work as expected when you connect with the green "Share" button? Actually I ask this because I could not get pantheon working (elementary OS 0.4 Loki) in Chrome Remote Desktop.

Per the Chromium ticket, the solution is to use root when setting up CRD.
