After installing chrome-remote-desktop on Ubuntu 18.04, I had issues with google-chrome not opening correctly and also terminal would not open. Also, trying to remote in would give me a blank screen on the client machine.

After following the instructions here, https://medium.com/@vsimon/how-to-install-chrome-remote-desktop-on-ubuntu-18-04-52d99980d83e remote desktop works flawlessly, with the existing X session on the host machine.

The question is how can I make remote desktop work with using a new X session, as its intended by the default chrome-remote-desktop script?
