Google’s remote desktop app which lets you log into one computer from another (or from a smartphone or tablet) is now available for Linux. Chrome Remote Desktop for Linux is still in beta, but it now supports Ubuntu, Debian, and related Linux-based operating systems.
That means you can use a Linux system to log into a Windows PC… or a Windows PC or Android phone (for example) to log into your Linux desktop.
Setting up Chrome Remote Desktop on a Linux system takes a little more work than doing it on a Windows or Mac machine.
First you’ll need to install the Google Chrome or Chromium web browsers, visit the Chrome Web Store and install the Chrome Remote Desktop app, and then you’ll need to manually download and install a Debian package and create a virtual desktop session.
You can find detailed instructions at the Chrome Remote Desktop support page under “enable remote access to your computer” in the Linux area.
I’ve tried to configure Chrome Remote Desktop beta on a few different virtual machines and one laptop running Linux Mint in my office with no luck so far. Your results may vary.
