Permission Denied Error When First Running Docker On Ubuntu 20.04

18th August 2020 - 4 minutes read time

Whilst setting up docker on my local development machine the other day I encountered a permission problem. After installing docker I found that I had this permission problem that meant I couldn't run docker using my local user accounts. I was therefore forced to run docker as sudo, which I didn't want to do every time.

This is the error I was getting.
