How to run Linux GUI on macos

I'm following this website's instruction so I can run Linux gui app on my mac:

https://kartoza.com/en/blog/how-to-run-a-linux-gui-application-on-osx-using-docker/

I've downloaded Kitematic (v0.17.7) and docker toolbox (v19.03.1) from github.

https://github.com/docker/kitematic/releases

https://github.com/docker/toolbox/releases

However, when I enter docker pull kartoza/qgis-desktop on the terminal, I get the following error:

Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?

Does anyone know what could be wrong?
