How to install DockStation on the Ubuntu desktop 19.04
Are you looking for an easy-to-use Docker container management GUI? Look no further than DockStation.

If you've been testing the waters of Docker containers, you know how daunting the command line can be. This is especially true if it comes from a GUI-centric environment. Fortunately, there are many GUIs available to help you with your work in containers.

One of these GUI is DockStation. This is a free and multiplatform GUI (available for Linux, macOS and Windows) that allows you to create new projects, monitor containers and much more. The only warning from DockStation is that it only allows you to connect to localhost. Because of this, the machine on which you install DockStation must not only have a running instance of Docker and docker-compose, but must also have a desktop environment.

If you tend to work with Docker containers from a GUI-enabled server, you are ready.

I will demonstrate the installation of DockStation in Ubuntu Desktop 19.04.


The first thing that must be taken care of is the installation of the dependencies. We will install the Docker command from the standard repositories with the command:

  sudo apt-get install -y 

When this is complete, we can continue with the installation of docker-compose. To install docker-compose, issue the following two commands:

  sudo curl -L "$(uname -s) - $ (uname -m) "-o / usr / local / bin / docker-compose
sudo chmod + x / usr / local / bin / docker-compose 

Next, we must add our user to the Docker group with the command:

  sudo usermod -aG docker $ USER 

Log out from your desktop and re-login

DockStation Installation

Download the DockStation .deb file from the GitHub download page. Save that file in your directory ~ / Downloads . Go back to the terminal window and install it with the following command:

  sudo dpkg -i dockstation * .deb 

It is likely that the previous command will fail. In that case, solve the problems with the command:

  sudo apt-get install -f 

When finished, you will be ready to run DockStation. Go to your desktop menu, locate the entry for DockStation and click on it. A login window will open ( Figure A ).

Click on the button Register now and sign up for a DockStation account (it's free). Once you register, log in to DockStation and you will be on the homepage, where you can start creating your first Docker project ( Figure B ).
