For a nice lightweight graphical interface, try IceWM (install it first with sudo apt-get install icewm):

exec /usr/sbin/lightdm-session 'gnome-session --session=ubuntu'
To make the new configuration stick, run:
sudo /etc/init.d/chrome-remote-desktop stopsudo /etc/init.d/chrome-remote-desktop start
