docker as normal user under Fedora 23


“The docker command line tool contacts the docker daemon process via a socket file /var/run/docker.sock owned by root:root. Though it’s recommended to use sudo for docker commands, if users wish to avoid it, an administrator can create a docker group, have it own /var/run/docker.sock, and add users to this group.”

sudo groupadd docker
sudo chown root:docker /var/run/docker.sock
sudo usermod -a -G docker $USERNAME

Don’t forget to relogin to make this change take effect.
