Good day all,
I am trying to eventually run the Genome Analysis Tool Kit. However, I am a Linux user and GATK does not run directly from the Windows version of Docker Desktop. I have been trying to install Docker Desktop through Ubuntu. Some nice tutorials online; however, these are failing. I am not using Ubuntu desktop but the terminal window (Ubuntu 22.1).
I have followed the installation instructions listed here: https://docs.docker.com/desktop/install/ubuntu/
I have installed with:
sudo apt-get install sudo apt install "/mnt/c/Users/chris/Downloads/docker-desktop-4.14.1-amd64.deb"

I have not completed this as there is no
The error message here is:
Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?
I have been through multiple help pages and fixes but I am still getting this message.
Any fix for this would be great or another way I could use GATK in the linux/ubuntu environment would be great.
