Hellow I am using open balena and am done with the set up but when Iam trying to deploy using:
“balena deploy myApp --logs --source . --emulated”
I get this error:
“Docker seems to be unavailable. Is it installed and running”
I have tried this solution below to run docker as a non root user but to no avail
please advise/ help needed
I would check the user you are running balena delpy has access to docker daemon. If not add the user to docker group with:
$ usermod -aG docker username
After running this you need to logout and log back in as user, or reload your shell environment, if using bash:
If that doesn’t work us top or ps to check docker process is running.
@Imran I think the suggestion is the best starting point, so if you could do this and test that you can run/start a docker container first, that would be great.
If you still have issues after that then let us know
