The Eye of the Lord is Upon Us – A Prayer

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine.  – Psalm 33:18-19

Father we rejoice in the fact that you have your eye on us, those who rest in your faithfulness and love toward us. Despite our ongoing sinful condition, we thank you that you will not leave us to our sin but will move heaven and earth to be near us and demonstrated that so clearly and effectively through blood of your son. Deliver us from our sin, deliver us from those things of the world that keep us from deeper fellowship with you. During the present state of the world would you sustain and keep our hearts alive and on fire with love for you even as we find ourselves in a famine of sorts. Draw near to us even as we draw near to you.

Chrome Remote Desktop Running on Ubuntu 18.04

These are the settings I had to change in the config file to get Chrome Remote Desktop working on my Ubuntu 18.04 server. Thanks to this site: https://superuser.com/questions/778028/configuring-chrome-remote-desktop-with-ubuntu-gnome-14-04

  1. Make a backup and then edit /opt/google/chrome-remote-desktop/chrome-remote-desktop
  2. Add screen size(s if multiples) to DEFAULT_SIZES to look like this:
    DEFAULT_SIZES = “1920×1080,3840×2160”
  3. Changed display number to 0:
  4. Comment out this section:
    #while os.path.exists(X_LOCK_FILE_TEMPLATE % display):
    #display += 1

  5. In this section, comment out self._launch_x_server(x_args) and self._launch_x_session() (shown below) and then add this:

    display = self.get_unused_display_number()
    self.child_env[“DISPLAY”] = “:%d” % display

    so that it looks like this:

    def launch_session(self, x_args):
    display = self.get_unused_display_number()
    self.child_env[“DISPLAY”] = “:%d” % display

  6. Save and exit, then stop and start the Chrome Remote Desktop service from the command line:
    sudo service chrome-remote-desktop stop
    sudo service chrome-remote-desktop start
