Issues with chromium-docker
#1
Hello There,

New to the PBP and Manjaro/arch. I am an old time enthusiast (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora) getting back into things after about 10 years. So don't assume I know anything :-) 

I have chromium and chromium-docker installed and have restarted but when I try to play a video on Amazon I still get the DRM error asking me to enable protected content playback (which it is enabled). I am unsure how to proceed to remedy this issue. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time.

Alright so it looks like my issues was the icon that was installed. chromium-docker requires sudo to run and the icon installed in the app tray did not contain sudo so the command kept failing and clearing before I could read it.

How did U fix this? If  I try to run the chromuim-docker from the application launcher it closes immediately (Manjaro/Plasma)

Maybe I just don't get what this package is doing. Is it running in the background? Or acting as the browser in place of FF?

EDIT: figured it out! Happy to add more if anyone ever needs it.

If anyone else needs it, you have to add yourself to docker group

Code:
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

Are there any tips for missing plug-ins? Generally, there is a blocking prompt in the browser URL bar.
