Docker is getting its popularity amongs developers, end user and Linux enthusiast. I am not going to explain what Docker is. You may read a comprehensive information about Docker from this link. On this tutorial, I am going to show you how to install Docker on Manjaro Linux. When this article is written, the latest available version of Docker is version 1.17.
Docker can be installed from Manjaro Pacman repository. In other words, installing Docker on Linux was never this easy as in Manjaro. We can use Pamac Software Manager to install Docker on Manjaro. Alternatively, using Terminal command also very easy. So, lets get started.
System Configuration used on this tutorial
- Manjaro 16.10
- Kernel version:4.4.52
- MATE Desktop
Steps to install Docker on Manjaro Linux
Open Terminal and use the following command to install Docker
[sudo] password for dhani:
looking for conflicting packages...
Packages (2) bridge-utils-1.6-1 docker-1:17.04.0-1
Total Download Size: 17,31 MiB
Total Installed Size: 80,78 MiB
:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n]
Answer y and the installation will continue.
Now start and enable Docker service on Manjaro
sudo systemctl start docker
sudo systemctl enable docker
Now Docker is running on Manjaro and we can start using it. For example I will pull “Hello World” from the repository
sudo docker run hello-world
[dhani@dhani-manjaro ~]$ sudo docker run hello-world
Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally
latest: Pulling from library/hello-world
78445dd45222: Pull complete
Status: Downloaded newer image for hello-world:latest
Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.
To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
to your terminal.
To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
$ docker run -it ubuntu bash
