Using Docker for Linux

SimpleDockerUI can connect to the Docker Remote API through the default socket unix:///var/run/docker.sock.

You need to be able to use docker commands without privileges (sudo).

Unable to connect to unix:///var/run/docker.sock, is Docker daemon running?
Error: connect EACCES /var/run/docker.socket

To avoid this error, add yourself to the docker group with:

  • Add your user to the docker group: sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

  • Have the user logout and login again.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
