Running docker on Linux Mint 17
2015-02-26

I tried to run docker on Linux mint. When executing sudo docker info I get the error message:

FATA[0000] Cannot connect to the Docker daemon. Is 'docker -d' running on this host?

sudo service docker.io start showed the PID of the docker daemon, but ps says it isn’t running. Turns out, the docker package from Linux Mint is broken.

Here are the instructions to run docker on Linux Mint:

sudo apt-get install apparmor lxc cgroup-lite docker.io
sudo service docker.io start

Now sudo docker info works.
