If docker is up and running, you will see the following status message:

           └─2638 docker-containerd -l unix:///var/run/docker/libcontainerd/dock

To start docker on boot, use this command

sudo systemctl enable docker

install docker on manjaro


"sudo pacman -S docker" works fine, but when I try to start Docker I got:

$ sudo systemctl start docker
Failed to start docker.service: Unit docker.service not found.

Any idea? =(
