Recently on my Chromebook running Crouton, I’ve had trouble running applications using xiwi after entering my chroot. I would receive the following error repeatedly:
write_image: Cannot find shm, moving on…
find_shm: Cannot connect to findnacl daemon. (Connection refused)
I tried re-updating my chroot, checking drivers, reinstalling the crouton integration extension, and none of those worked, but this did:
- Enter the chroot
- Run the following command: chown -R 1000:1000 “$HOME”
Apparently, permissions can get messed up and stop xiwi from functioning properly.
