Check installed prerequisites

You can check whether dependencies are already installed:

  • Docker: docker version

  • NVIDIA driver: nvidia-smi

  • NVIDIA Docker runtime: nvidia-container-runtime --version

If any of the above commands returns an error, proceed with the next section or parts of it.

Set up host machine

Install Docker

Install Docker

curl -fsSL -o

Add your user to the docker group. It takes effect with the next login.

sudo groupadd docker
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

If you don't add your user to the docker group, you'll receive the following error when running the docker command:

Got permission denied while trying to connect to the Docker daemon socket at unix:///var/run/docker.sock: Get http:///var%2Frun%2Fdocker.sock/v1.40/containers/json: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: connect: permission denied

Install NVIDIA driver

Install NVIDIA driver with sudo apt install nvidia-driver-515

Install Nvidia Container Runtime

Install nvidia-container-runtime: Required to access the GPUs within the Docker containers.

curl -s -L | \
  sudo apt-key add -
distribution=$(. /etc/os-release;echo $ID$VERSION_ID)
curl -s -L$distribution/nvidia-container-runtime.list | \
  sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-container-runtime.list

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y nvidia-container-runtime
sudo systemctl restart docker

Test the setup

docker run --gpus all nvidia/cuda:11.7.1-base-ubuntu22.04 nvidia-smi

Deploy Celantur Container

You'll receive an email from Celantur containing:


  1. Create a new directory (e.g. "Celantur").

  2. Run wget <> in the newly created directory to download the bash script

  3. Run export PASSWD=... to set the password for downloading Celantur Container as a temporary environment variable.

  4. Run mkdir licensing and copy the license file into the licensing directory.

If your password expired, please let us know. We're happy to send you a new one.

Anonymize your first images

  1. Run mkdir input

  2. Copy some images into the input directory.

  3. Run bash -a face -a license-plate --format pano:8000 (for panorama images).

  4. Check the anonymized in the output directory.
