Command line explanation

  • Run in interactive mode.
  • Export display.
  • Share x11 drivers from host to container.

Container usage


When you access to container firefox is launched automatically.

But if you have closed firefox windows and you want to reload it:

:computer: firefox



  • After to be sure for your user ID and group ID you can export data.
  • Create identical user with Developper name.
  • Give him sudoers privileges to machine host to access without password.
  • Using Developer user.
  • Launch Firefox.


Use host drivers to display GUI applications from container.
Do not use this container with remote access.


Make sudoers give dangerous access permissions...
Sharing drivers turn sandbox to isolation failure...
Reserve it to test only in local mode.
