Docker Desktop on Linux#
If you are using Docker Desktop on Linux your user is not going to utilize docker-engine on your system. Instead, in the
background Docker Desktop creates a Virtual Machine with Docker installed on it. After that Docker Desktop forwards the
socket of this machine’s docker to your machine in your home (eg:
~/.docker/desktop/docker.sock) and sets your
docker command (using docker contexts) to use this socket.
You can check these contexts using
docker context ls.

To change this behaviour permanently, you can open
~/.reward.yml and add the following line:
If you want to change the docker socket temporary you can set an environment variable before calling
DOCKER_HOST=/home/_YOUR_USER_/.docker/desktop/docker.sock reward env ps
