Can't install docker properly

Installed docker1.6 from deb package but have a problem on running:

sudo docker version
Client version: 1.6.2
Client API version: 1.18
Go version (client): go1.4.2
Git commit (client): 7c8fca2
OS/Arch (client): linux/amd64
FATA[0000] Get http:///var/run/docker.sock/v1.18/version: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: no such file or directory. Are you trying to connect to a TLS-enabled daemon without TLS?

    I didn’t have external net on that machine so I downloaded docker deb by this script:

    for package in lxc-docker lxc-docker-$docker_version; do
        curl -s $get_docker/$package/$deb -o $deb

    That error means the Docker daemon isn’t running. Try running docker -d first, then running your Docker command.

    If that returns an error, you’ll need to figure out why (you may be missing a dependency for example).

    can you try this command:

    sudo wget -qO- | sh

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
