Install Docker on Linux Mint 18

Posted on July 12th, 2016 in docker, linux by Simon

Happily this is largely the same as for Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus. The official steps are available here.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates -y
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://p80.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-keys 58118E89F3A912897C070ADBF76221572C52609D
sudo echo deb https://apt.dockerproject.org/repo ubuntu-xenial main >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get purge lxc-docker
sudo apt-get install linux-image-extra-$(uname -r) -y
sudo apt-get install docker-engine cgroup-lite apparmor -y
sudo usermod -a -G docker $USER
sudo service docker start

Happy Docking!
