Docker permissions denied on launch on Mac OS

Hey there,
Whenever i try to launch docker on my mac, before it even launch I get this error
“creating “rootNode” subnodes: constructing “BackendServices” in “rootNode”: starting supervisor: remove /Users/lolanolan/.docker/run/docker.sock: permission denied”.

I have tried to add it to a Docker group, I have uninstalled and reinstalled 4 times and I have even tried to use sudo chmod 666 /var/run/docker.sock.

I’m very confused and Not sure what to do?

If anyone has ever had this persiting issue and knows what might be going wrong/ how to fix it that would be amazing!

Thanks :slight_smile:

This is not the socket from the error message, but I don’t know what and why wants to remove it. Please, show the output of the following command:

ls -l $HOME/.docker/run/docker.sock

You can also try to rename the .docker folder, see if it works after that and you can restore tha folder later if you need to.
