Can't connect to renkulab docker registry

Hello renku team,

I’m trying to run a renkulab image from a project of mine on my own machine. I’m thus following these steps: Use the Docker Images built on RenkuLab — Renku documentation

I’ve setup an ssh key on my gitlab account, and cloned the git repo to my own machine. I’ve verified that I’m well able to read / write on the repository (i.e push to gitlab) from my own machine.

I’ve setup an access token on renkulab, giving registry read and repository read / write access.

While in the project dir, on my own machine, i run docker login, get prompted for my username (cyril.pulver) an then the password, i.e the access token I’ve saved from before. But upon entering the access token, I get: permission denied while trying to connect to the Docker daemon socket at unix:///var/run/docker.sock: Post "http://%2Fvar%2Frun%2Fdocker.sock/v1.24/auth": dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: connect: permission denied

Anything I’m doing wrong ?

Thanks for your help !

hi @bopekno this sounds more like docker either isn’t running on your machine or is misconfigured. Are you sure it’s otherwise working as expected?

It looks like the local user is not in the docker group and can’t access docker.

indeed… please excuse my docker noobness
