Docker buildx "failed to find driver cloud"


I signed up for docker build cloud and followed the setup instructions for local installation.
However, when setting the option --driver cloud, I receive a driver not found error.

After reviewing the documentation
cloud is not listed as an option. I’m running docker 26.1.1 with buildx 0.14 on Ubuntu 22 amd64.

docker buildx create --driver cloud m400/mikes-builder
ERROR: failed to find driver "cloud"

As it says in the first line of the instruction of Local installation, you need Docker Desktop. Do you have it?

“or CLI binaries.” That is the Docker Desktop binaries, I assume.
I think you are right; I’ll mark it as solved.

Found it.

" To use Docker Build Cloud without Docker Desktop, you must download and install a version of Buildx with support for Docker Build Cloud (the cloud driver). You can find compatible Buildx binaries on the releases page of this repository."

Good point. And thank you for sharing the link. I just wanted to ask for the link of the page which is on the screenshot and I found the page which you linked now, but I missed the part where it mentioned “without Docker Desktop” and the previous section said Desktop was a requirement.

If you can change the solution flag, you can mark your post as solution. Mine was not really right anyway :slight_smile:

Having another set of eyes helped me realize this. The power of community :handshake:
