I installed chrome remote desktop in Ubuntu 18.04.

First issue, I can't add a new device which solved by:

Can't set up remote access on chrome remote desktop

The current issue, the connection is always disconnected when trying to connect from other devices.

When login ( enter the pin code ), it will show a session selection screen. Whatever I choose, both get an end connection immediately.

The options are:

  1. (default) Launch the default XSession.
  2. Ubuntu This session logs you into Ubuntu.


  1. The pin code is correct.
  2. If I use Remote Support function which generated the one-time connection code, it works normally.

The user needs to log out first in the local machine.

  • How does the local machine user log in after that? Even after my remote session is disconnected, I can't login from the local machine. It acts like I'm still remote connected to the sever.

    The remote session needs to logout also.

  • Is there a way for a remote user to force out everyone else when a local user is logged in?
