Sign in to queue

Description

The Windows Subsystem for Linux doesn’t just allow you to run a Bash Shell on Windows 10. Instead, Windows Subsystem for Linux gives you access to all of your favourite open source tools alongside your favourite Windows toolkit. Learn how to configure and deploy Ubuntu on Windows, keep it up to date, find and install additional software, run graphical applications locally in X-Windows, interact with your Windows environment, and how to quickly deploy your Windows/Ubuntu settings and environment to other computers.

    Thanks for the presentation, is good to have all the "goodies" explained in one Video.
    Just a small feedback: the sound quality is not really good, but I guess during the presentation you were not near the microphone.

    For the VSCode, I also wrote a small try for "web developers" instead on my blog: http://nunix.tech

    Good job and hear you next time :)

    Two machines running Win10 Insider Fast ring build 15048 do not seem to have the directories you showed under C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\lsxx in Windows Explorer. Are you running a later build?

    I am hoping to understand where the resource configuration files are for launching bash via cmd.exe, so as to add persistent environment variables. I have to date only succeeded in setting thee environment when bash is up and running, but they don't persist on the next launch of bash.

    Great presentation. The recording was ruined by the sound being extremely low.

    typing:

    sudo sed -i's/<listen>.*<\/listen>/<listen>tcp:host=localhost,port=0<\/listen>/'/etc/dbus-1/session.conf

    into the Windows bash shell just displays the help info, and I can get the desktop, but a lot of:

    unity.glib.dbus.proxy GLibDBusProxy.cpp:196 Unable to connect to proxy: "Could not connect: No such file or directory"

    and other errors appear.

    TY for your lecture!
