Run a command in a Distrobox - distrobox-enter

Run a command in a Distrobox container. Default command executed is your SHELL, but you can specify different shells or entire commands to execute. If used inside a script, an application, or a service, you can specify the --headless mode to disable tty and interactivity. More information:

distrobox-enter container-name -- sh -l

  • Enter a distrobox without instantiating a tty:

distrobox-enter -H container-name -- uptime -p
