Hi Michael, as the error message states, in you have already an existing
.kube/config
file. The path is the one on Windows, so I guess you might have created a symlink on your Ubuntu distro that points to your Windows home (either the full home, or just
.kube
directory). That being said, in your Ubuntu distro, if you rename the
.kube
directory, you'll see that the box won't be grayed anymore in Rancher Desktop. Finally, due to this error, the docker socket is indeed not installed in your Ubuntu distro and that's why you can't run docker commands successfully

Thanks - I stopped rancher desktop, deleted
~./kube
and restarted rancher desktop. It recreated a fresh
~/.kube/config
but preferences>WSL still gave me the same error. I've tried changing rancher to the containerd instead of moby, but
nerdctl
also gives me an error inside WSL. This has to do with no systemd, i believe.
Copy code
FATA[0001] rootless containerd not running? (hint: use `containerd-rootless-setuptool.sh install` to start rootless containerd): stat /wslg/runtime-dir/containerd-rootless: no such file or directory
