More fun with Docker and Homebrew - authentication this time

Following on from my earlier post: -

Homebrew on macOS - Docker says "No" - well, kinda 

I hit a related problem post the installation of Minikube etc.

When I tried to log into Docker Hub: -

docker login -u davidhay1969

I saw this: -


Error saving credentials: error storing credentials - err: exec: "docker-credential-desktop": executable file not found in $PATH, out: ``

This post: -

docker-credential-desktop not installed or not available in PATH

gave me the "solution" - it was another hangover from having Docker Desktop installed, namely this file: -


For whatever good reason, it was necessary to edit it, and replace credsStore with credStore

Once I did this, all was well ...

And, of course, docker login completely rewrote that file, removing any reference to either credsStore or credStore ...

Again... HANGOVER!
