NOOB - installing docker software from scratch, step by step

Hello everyone,

I have tried searching for help on this already but have not yet found exactly what I am looking for.

I will be installing zorin os onto my old Mac mini 2912 very shortly that I use as a mini home server.

Once zorin is installed I am wanting to then install a number of apps as dockers/containers. But I have never used Linux before or dockers so was wondering if either anyone can recommended a step by step guide on how to get a docker setup up and running fully or if not if anyone would be willing to help and guide me along my journey.

Thabks in advance

You can install Docker on Zorin OS using either the Software Store or the terminal with

sudo apt install docker

If you want the latest version, you will need to add the Docker Repository by adding the GPG key below, then adding Docker to your APT sources. I recommend testing the stable version first and only installing the latest version if it is needed:

sudo curl -fsSL -o /etc/apt/keyrings/docker.asc

sudo chmod a+r /etc/apt/keyrings/docker.asc

echo \
  "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/docker.asc] \
  $(. /etc/os-release && echo "$UBUNTU_CODENAME") stable" | \
  sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null
sudo apt install docker-ce docker-ce-cli docker-buildx-plugin docker-compose-plugin
