Chrome Remote Desktop
« on: November 19, 2016, 12:10:24 pm »
Hi all,

Running Peppermint 7, I installed Chrome Remote Desktop following these steps: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/1649523?hl=en
/usr/share/xsessions/Peppermint.desktop has this 'Exec' line in it:
Code: [Select]
Exec=/usr/bin/startpeppermint
My .chrome-remote-desktop-session file that is located in my home directory has this line:
Code: [Select]
exec /usr/sbin/lightdm-session "/usr/bin/startpeppermint"
Later I did allow for remote connections in Chrome Remote Desktop app and created a PIN. Then from my phone I did connect to my desktop without problems.
The only thing is that I get a new session/desktop. It doesn't mirror my current desktop.
Is there something that I have missed or there are other step(s) that I have to do?

Thank you in advance.
