Sandbox Ubuntu Image

This ubuntu image attempts to immitate a standard (non docker) ubuntu workstation.

It contains the essential packages pre-installed, and a non root user (with sudo privileges) named ubuntu


$ docker run --rm -it dannyben/ubuntu

Using it as a base image

Since this image sets the user to ubuntu, if you need to execute commands that require root access in your image, you need to use this pattern:

FROM dannyben/ubuntu
USER root

# root stuff goes here

USER ubuntu

You can’t perform that action at this time.
