I want to maintain host machine that installed docker with minimal packages as possible - I'm using archlinux that is rolling-based system, currently I have 142 packages.

But when I'm at work, I still want to use arch but some softwares are a must-to-use when working with others, for example: Skype - that involve access to camera and microphone - hardware level of host and possible some ports need to open.

For the particular case that is Skype how to install it in a container using docker and give it full functions as if it's installed on host? So that whenever I want to use Skype I just need to login to container and start to use it?

    Interfacing with hardware devices isn't Docker's strong suit, but I did find a couple of images to run Skype in a container: 1, 2. – Haxiel Feb 24 '19 at 17:31
  • I've just seen that Skype supports web UI, so I think I'm good now, even install Pulseaudio would burden my package management. – Tuyen Pham Feb 25 '19 at 1:32
