Linux: Remote Desktop Connection Sharing with Google Chrome Browser

Hello Guys,

You can take a Remote Desktop of any Computer via Plugin Introduced by Google. This Plugin is cross platform you can Use this Plugin on Windows and Linux As Well.

I have Installed this Plugin on Ubuntu 12.04’s Google Chrome and It worked Perfectly fine for me.

Google Introduces fantastic plug-in with Google Chrome. Now You can take anybody’s remote and you can access screen for Support and Solution.

Google Launches Chrome Remote Desktop support plug-in for Google Chrome Support. I Just like this plugin very much.

I have tested this plug-in and its working very nice and so smooth. This time Google Targeted TeamViewer. Frankly Speaking, I was a big fan of TeamViewer but started hatting it once it expires free version. I hope google doesn’t put any restriction on connection or time limit.

This is a Big Loss of TeamViewer and very much advantage for those users who always gives online support and wants to take remote desktop support for solutions.

Howto: Install Google Voice and Video Chat on Fedora | RHEL | Linux | RPM-Based System

Hello Guys,

As I have already posted that Google Voice and Video chat is available for Linux but Only for Ubuntu, Today i was googling for installing Google Voice and Video chat on Fedora | RHEL and RPM Based Linux.  So I Found 1 very nice howto on google helps itself. A very nice howto which shows us that howto install using DEB file. I am posting that with some modification.

Google Released Official RPM to Install using Official RPM follow this link :- http://www.tejasbarot.com/2010/09/02/install-google-voice-video-chat-using-official-google-rpm-fedora-rhel-linux/

Perform following steps to install Google Voice & Video chat on Fedora | RHEL and RPM Based Linux

1. You need to be root for Doing this. So be as a root

2. Click Here to Download DEB File. Or Execute Below command on Terminal.

# wget -c http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-talkplugin_current_i386.deb

3. Move deb file to /tmp directory. Execute below command
# mv google-talkplugin_current.deb /tmp

4. Now Change your Directory to /tmp. Execute cd /tmp

5. Now Execute below command
# ar vx google-talkplugin_current.deb # This command will extract DEB file here.

6. Above command will install drivers, but as we don’t have exact RPM so we have to make link of some library files. Execute below commands
# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s ../../lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0a libcrypto.so.0.9.8
#
ln -s libssl.so.1.0.0a libssl.so.0.9.8

(non-Fedora distributions, and other versions of Fedora, may have different locations and version numbers for these libraries, but the same basic method should work.)

7. Now Again lets change our directory to /tmp where we have extracted DEB file. Execute command below
# cd /tmp
# tar xvzf data.tar.gz -C /

8. Now change your directory to /opt/google/talkplugin by executing command below
cd /opt/google/talkplugin

9. Type Below command
./GoogleTalkPlugin

If Everything is fine you will able to see two lines as below

./GoogleTalkPlugin: /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8: no version information available (required by ./GoogleTalkPlugin)
./GoogleTalkPlugin: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8: no version information available (required by ./GoogleTalkPlugin)

Above lines are not errors its just warnings so Don’t worry.

By following this howto on some systems plugin will work on firefox and on some plugin will work on Google Chrome. Don’t know the reason but its only like that. Also I don’t say or not any surety that this will works for all.

I want to thank this post for showing a very nice way to install Google Plugin without RPM.

Google Chrome (Beta) for Linux Is Officially Available

Hello,

Though Linux users could test the popular browser for a couple of months through unofficial Chromium builds, yesterday, June 4th, Google announced the first official release of Google Chrome for Linux. The version 3.0.183.1 is still very unstable and lacks a lot of features.

One of Chrome’s main advantages over other web browsers is the way it handles tabs as separate processes. Why is this important? Well, if a web page crashes, it doesn’t take the whole browser with it, but only the tab it was opened in, significantly increasing overall stability.
