No Connection After Close Browser

Hey All,

I hope everyone is doing well. I upgraded my hard drive last week and everything went fine including reinstalling WebODM. But, when I close my browser or reboot, I get the attached error. I followed all the steps carefully, but can’t get rid of the “Docker Daemon not connecting error”. Or, at least get it to hold permanently. I hope this is an easy one for the brilliant minds of the WebODM community. I’m running Manjaro Linux on a Z820 HP, 128gbRAM, 6GBnvidiaGPU, and had WebODM installed for close to a year. Please let me know how to completely remove if I need to start over.

Update 1
I renamed the WebODM_BAK folder and installed again. Not sure if that is the correct procedure, but it’s running a task now. Added a new screen shot to the bottom. Should line 2 say disabled and disabled? I do have to keep the terminal open at all times to keep it working. I don’t think it was like that last year.

You should try enabling the Docker service using the systemd services manager, and try adding your username to the Docker group.

You can fork commands to the background by appending an ampersand to the end of the command before pressing enter to execute the command in the terminal.

Thank you for your response. I can only communicate with Docker using sudo. How do I change my permissions. What’s the code sequence that I should use to switch to root permissions.

Thanks again.

$ sudo docker run hello-world

Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.
To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:

  1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
  2. The Docker daemon pulled the “hello-world” image from the Docker Hub.
  3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
    executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
  4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
    to your terminal.
    To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
    $ docker run -it ubuntu bash
    Share images, automate workflows, and more with a free Docker ID:

$ docker run hello-world

See ‘docker run --help’.

Thanks for the responses. I used the two articles below to start daemon at boot up and to add myself to the group.
