Custom Plugin not showing for wireshark group user but showing non-wireshark group user


I have build a new dissector and added plugins on 2.6.1 wireshark version running on ubuntu 17. When I run the wireshark for the my username who has been added to the wireshark group, I don't see my plugin under Analyze -> Enabled protocols and hence not in Help->About Wireshark -> plugins.

Seems that wireshark is not dissecting the plugin. However, if I were to start wireshark outside of the wireshark group, plugin shows up but I need to be able to see the plugins for the user in the wireshark group so that I can capture the packets.

Please advice as I am not sure why for the wireshark group user the plugin does not shows up at all?
