Using Docker images for Linux Mint

Post by goksron » Thu May 24, 2018 4:34 pm

Hi-

I'm stuck with a Mac at work, don't want to fiddle with the boot system or run Parallels/VirtualBox.
I see that the Mint project maintains Docker images for 18 & 19.
I'd love to just use these, with /home as a shared volume, under Docker. How can we run the Docker image and get the full Cinnamon desktop experience via VNC?

Just did quick & dirty Cinnamon desktop on docker container here:

https://github.com/virtimus/i3c/tree/ma ... /xrdp/mint

under i3c i run it by /i rbrr xrdp/mint

but without i3c something like

build -t myimage .
docker run -d -p 3389:3389 -p 2222:22 -e MB_PASS=password myimage

should also do (user mb/password)

Hi @virtimus

I tried to build your image but got the following error (I am a docker noob so may be my fault):

Code: Select all

C:\Users\WeldenD\repos\i3c\dockerfiles\xrdp\mint>docker build -t tara .
Sending build context to Docker daemon  136.7kB
Step 1/54 : FROM i3c/base/ubuntu18/mint as builder
Get https://registry-1.docker.io/v2/i3c/base/ubuntu18/mint/manifests/latest: unauthorized: incorrect username or password
