Hi! Docker is since some days available as a properly confined snap. This will work on top of classic Ubuntu 16.04+ or on top of an up-to-date Ubuntu Core series 16.
Because the docker.sock path is hardcoded in a lot of images, this snap conflicts with docker debs, so make sure you remove them first: sudo apt purge docker docker-engine Create a system group for docker: sudo groupadd --system docker Install the snap: sudo snap install docker And connect the interfaces (these will go away we have a snap-declaration in place): sudo snap connect docker:docker-cli docker:docker-daemon sudo snap connect docker:firewall-control ubuntu-core:firewall-control sudo snap connect docker:support ubuntu-core:docker-support sudo service snap.docker.dockerd stop sudo service snap.docker.dockerd start You're now ready to use docker, e.g.: sudo /snap/bin/docker run --rm -it hello-world sudo /snap/bin/docker run --rm -it ubuntu At the moment, the Docker snap is available for amd64, armhf, arm64, i386. Docker-compose is also included, and may be used with the "docker.compose" command. Want to read more about docker? Read the Docker snap status and FAQ doc <https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JHa6tkuR9PtpnAVVmAJIAKuyKBy8E9ZkvG5Wbc6HZSY/edit?usp=sharing> ! Have fun and please report issues against https://github.com/docker-snap/docker Cheers, - Loïc Minier
