Welcome to the community @simrangupta234
Can you tell few more details about your setup like it’s Mac, Linux, Windows?

also try running the command with adding sudo at the start like this

$ sudo curl -L https://git.io/meshery | PLATFORM=docker bash -

I’m using git bash in windows

Let’me know if sudo thing fails to help you :slightly_smiling_face:

Showing sudo command not found.

$ sudo curl -L https://git.io/meshery | PLATFORM=docker bash -
bash: sudo: command not found

It’s an issue from git bash terminal. I see git bash doesn’t have sudo command.

Run the Git Bash or the console you are running, with Run As Administrator

Still showing same error, after running as Administrator.

This error explains that you can’t create the destination because you don’t have permission. Can you look into how you can solve this, I am not a windows oriented developer so I don’t have much idea on how to solve this error.

That’s the problem. I don’t know, how to solve that.

Hi @simrangupta234 can you try setting up Meshery in WSL2?

Can you tell, how to use that?

thanks, that’s helpful.

After running in wsl2, again getting the error.
