chromium sync not working

Actually, the chrome 'sync services' aren't available because the Pkgfile in
opt/chromium doesn't build with api keys. You can generate/build with these keys
using the following instructions[1]. I believe there's also an option to provide
the keys at runtime. That should fix your problems with syncing.

Here's my Pkgfile[2] for chromium. It's heavily based on the arch PKGBUILD, but
uses my own api keys and enables some other things widevine and flash.

BTW, the readme of opt/chromium also has warnings about the lack of features due
to Google API access in the NOTES section.
