Chrome Remote Desktop - Enable Remote Connections support for Linux?

Chrome Version 26.0.1386.0 (Official Build 177362dev
Operating System Linux
Extensions Chrome Remote Desktop

Hi,

I'm using Google Chrome with the Chrome Remote Desktop feature, and it's really awesome.

However, the "Enable Remote Connections" feature doesn't seem to work on Linux =(.

I was just wondering if Linux support is on the roadmap? And if so, any idea of ETA? Or is it not just something Google plan to do?

Cheers,
Victor

Hi!
 
I agree, and I would also be VERY happy if there is full Linux support on the roadmap!

Hi Victor,

We have a host package for Linux in the works and hope to launch it soon.

Best regards,

Hi Skonig,
 
This is great news. Its the single reason I've held off buying a Chrome book.
 
Any further clarity then "soon"?
 
Thanks,
Mike

Yeah, me too - why the hell was there no "Enable Remote Connections"-button... ;-) I ended up removing and reinstalling the Chrome Remote Desktop Extension several times. No success obviously. Then I found this thread. Actually I'm a bit eased now, but really hoping for this new linux host package. Great news.

I have the same problem (no button "enable remote connections") on Ubuntu. But it seems that other people do not have this problem...

Gary Cowell,

Did you not receive a Chrome OS device with additional Google Drive storage for your Google Account?  For people attempting to access corporate networks with Remote Desktop, you likely require permission anyway.  Otherwise, getting adjusted with a Chrome OS device and cloud computing is a little different.  So, take advantage of porting files from your other computer to Google Drive for access on both devices while online; make use of the Google Apps offline apps like Google Drive, Calendar, and Gmail; and then Sign into Google Chrome Sync and sync browser tabs and data for access on other computers.

I'm well aware of Google Drive, which is nothing to do with Chrome Remote Desktop. I don't want to share files, I want to share the desktop.
 
It's just that my (HOME) desktop is running Linux, and that's what I want to access using my Chromebook.

I would like to enable my Ubuntu 12.04LTS Desktop for Chrome Remote Desktop sharing.
