I am having a difficult time getting the OTB plugin to work on QGIS 3.22 on my MacBook running M1 ARM. I followed the directions listed on this page to use a Docker Image for install

Orfeo ToolBox Docker Image Install

and I was able to successfully create a container for orfeotoolbox/otb:8.0.1 as shown in the image below.

Orfeo ToolBox Docker Container

However, when I go to QGIS under Settings > Options > Processing > Providers > OTB there is no activate option. I attempted to add the OTB application folder and OTB folder directories but I was not able to physically locate the image on the disk. Docker says it is located at ENV OTB_APPLICATION_PATH=/opt/otb/lib/otb/applications but I cannot find that path on my Mac and QGIS does not recognize the path either.

I feel like I'm overlooking something simple here but I can't crack this nut for some reason.

Has anyone had success in connecting the QGIS OTB plugin on a MacBook M1 ARM machine?
