I just installed Docker for Mac. I opened the terminal and tried to execute “docker ps”, but it failed with the error message “Cannot connect to the Docker daemon. Is the docker daemon running on this host?” When I click the whale in my menu bar, it says Docker is running.
I’ve uploaded my diagnostic and the ID is “61F285D4-3E00-4AD7-8E98-E59C602668C9”. I’m running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 beta.
In my case that’s exactly the problem. To run docker commands I have to use the “sudo” or change to root with “sudo su”. If I run without sudo or root permissions then I get the error specified by fishnet. Any ideas on how to avoid having to elevated permissions to run docker?
