I'm trying to get docker working. The systemctl command shows that the docker daemon is running. When I do "sudo docker run hello-world", all is well. When I run "docker run hello-world", I get this error:
docker: Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///home/ian/.docker/desktop/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?.
See 'docker run --help'.
I've seen a post install step (in documentation) where I add myself to the docker group and reboot, login and try "docker run hello-world" again. I'm sure I've done that on PopOs! and Ubuntu and that worked in the past. When I do that process now, I get no errors, but I still can't run containers as me. It must be a permissions thing, I just don't know what to do. I was really looking forward to learning MongoDb in a container, but now I'm stumped.
I'm not sure how to uninstall and clean up docker and try again, other whether I'm facing a wipe and reinstall. (I hope not).
