subuser(1) install, administer, and run desktop applications with Docker.

SYNOPSIS

subuser [SUBCOMMAND] [SUBCOMMAND ARGS]

DESCRIPTION

subuser allows you to install and administer desktop applications contained using Docker. This is useful if you need to provide portability across Linux distributions or hightened security. The applications have limited access to the main system and user files. Access is granted solely through a whitelisting permissions file.

EXAMPLES

To create a subuser named web-browsing based on the iceweasel image

$ subuser subuser add web-browsing [email protected]

To run that subuser

$ subuser run web-browsing

To create a second subuser, also based on the iceweasel image, but this time reserved for internet banking

$ subuser subuser add internet-banking [email protected]

To run that subuser

$ subuser run internet-banking

To add a subuser to the PATH

$ subuser subuser add-to-path internet-banking

To update your subuser images

$ subuser update all

All updates are atomic, and you can continue to use your subusers while the update command is running. If you find that an older version of a subuser's image was better, you can always roll back the update for that subuser

$ subuser registry log $ subuser lock-subuser-to internet-banking <commit-hash-from-log>
