Error starting xiwi

Cannot run xiwi applications in Crouton

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:

  1. Enter the chroot
  2. Run the following command:¬†chown -R 1000:1000 “$HOME”

Apparently, permissions can get messed up and stop xiwi from functioning properly.
