Install Podman on Windows 11

The installation guide for running Podman on Windows 11 follows the same idea as Install Docker on Windows 11 without Docker Desktop.



Note: The following steps will be based on Ubuntu WSL and it follows the official Podman installation for Ubuntu.

Step 1. Update package index:

sudo apt-get update -y

Step 2. Add Podman package repo:

echo "deb https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/kubic:/libcontainers:/testing/xUbuntu_${VERSION_ID}/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/devel:kubic:libcontainers:testing.list

Step 3. Install the ca-certificates package:

sudo apt-get install -y ca-certificates

Step 4. Download and add the required GPG key:

curl -L "https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/kubic:/libcontainers:/testing/xUbuntu_${VERSION_ID}/Release.key" | sudo apt-key add -

Step 5. Update the package index again:

sudo apt-get update -y

Step 6. Finally, install Podman:

sudo apt-get install -y podman

Step 7. Last but not least, verify the installation:
