Docker desktop stopped (Ubuntu 22.04)

Hello,

I’m on Ubuntu 22.04 and after installation, the application does not work. I have the message Docker desktop stopped and a short message in red that says “Unable to calculate image disk size”. Thank you for your help.

Files : docker-desktop-4.15.0-amd64.deb

If Docker Desktop has stopped running on your Ubuntu 22.04 system, there are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Check the status of the Docker daemon:

sudo systemctl status docker

This command will tell you if the Docker daemon is running or not. If it is not running, you can try to start it using the following command:

sudo systemctl start docker

Hello,

Thank you for your reply.
I see that in the terminal everything seems to work normally, but the software hangs. This is what I get in the terminal:

That is Docker CE, not Docker Desktop. Docker Desktop is not just a graphical interface on top of an existing Docker CE. It runs everything in a virtual machine even on Linux. I don’t recommend having Docker Desktop and Docker CE on the same machine, although you can do that and I am planning to talk about it in the near future.

If you check the documentation, you will see a completely different command.

systemctl --user start docker-desktop

but I have never used the systemctl command for Docker Desktop.

If you need a troubleshoot guide, you can find that too in the docs:

It also mentions where you can report issues and how you can check the logs.

Ok thank you. I’ll watch it all and you’ll know.
