I get now constant errors like this (file independent) on macosx / docker-machine (version 0.7.0, build a650a40) using these docker client / server versions. I just pulled latest image 0d49309a06ff but this did not solve the issue

This works for me on macOS El Capitan, using docker-machine 0.8.2 and docker 1.12.5 from homebrew.

It looks like the problem is related to how docker is configured on your machine, because it's unable to bind a socket (this is used only for IPC - ocrmypdf does not need a network).

This makes me think there could be something wrong with your virtual box configuration for docker and you might need to reinstall docker-machine. The docker image auto-builds and has worked for almost a year so it probably worked on the April 2016 version of docker that you have installed.

ok, correct - sorry my fault. removing and re-creating the docker machine solved the problem.

Just as a note, my first attempt at using this library I tried with Docker for Windows. No amount of resetting/restarting worked, and this was on a fresh install. There must be some underlying issue with sockets + Docker for Windows as I continued to get this error. I switched to using WSL and that worked out for me.
