File cast from chrome don't work either. Only mouse cursor appears over black screen. Had to logon under X11 session for things to work better.

Hey there Rodrigo,
 
I'm sorry to say but in order to cast your computer screen from Google Chrome, you'll need to use either Mac, Windows, and Chrome OS. It is not currently supported on any Linux distributions.
 
I know it's not the answer you wanted, but if you had any more questions for me, feel free to ask!
 
Thank you,
