How to get Docker desktop on Ubuntu?

I am new to Docker/Kubernetes and trying to see if there is a way to get ‘Docker Desktop’ like functionality on Ubuntu, which is my primary development machine. All I know from my search is that the ‘Docker Desktop’ is only from Windows and Mac.

It contains many useful tools bundled together as below which is great for someone like me who is new to the ecosystem :

Docker Desktop includes Docker Engine, Docker CLI client, Docker Compose, Notary, Kubernetes, and Credential Helper.

Is there a way to get docker desktop for Linux or is there anything similar?



Currently, docker desktop supported Mac, Windows only.

For ubuntu, you can use Docker Engine with Portainer (Web-based).

Other options:
