Kobo-install Error: Couldn't connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost

Hi guys!

I’m trying to setup Kobotoolbox in a local instance (workstation) because i need to be able to “design” forms while i’m working off.the-grid in rural communities.
I’ have a fresh installation with the following specs:
-Ubuntu 18-04.3 desktop
8gb ram
200gbs hdd available

first i clone the git repo in ~/kobo-install and execute command :
“python run.py”
script begins to run ok, but at some point i receive this message:

ERROR: Couldn’t connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost - is it running?

If it’s at a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable.
An error has occurred

so idk what i’m doing wrong or how can i fix it. :confused:

any help will be deeply appreciated.

Best regards from Guatemala.

Hi @neridmartinez,

Are you sure docker daemon is running?
