Yes, I tried way 1 and it worked for me! 👍

There is a Guides Section in the docs, where it would fit in imho.

Some suggestions:

  • You could explicitly tell that the first command needs to be run in a separate terminal session.
  • The last command could be a simple exit in the terminal session from the first command.
  • If you append a -q to the second command, it will print the ID only.
  • You could even merged the second and third command as docker cp $(docker ps -q):/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/qml/ [path to somewhere]
  • I'd suggest to put some path in there instead of [path to somewhere], e.g. $HOME/.ubuntu-components
