    Hi there
    @slicendice

    That doesn't work as you need to connect to X-server so you can't release the console while the windowed application is running. The console command runs while the window app comes up i.e the ubuntu main windows bash command and then a screen with your application e.g spider. (kpat is the actual command for this set of games).

    The main problem is somewhere with the DBUS interface which I need to do a bit more research over -- currently the console will issue a few messages while the windowed application is running so you can't get in to add more commands.

    I think once I can sort out some sort of DBUS interface I might be able to get a minimal desktop GUI up --then all the applications should run directly from the desktop GUI !!!

    Cheers

    Hi there
    @slicendice

    Here's what you get -- the Windowed program starts - there's an ignorable error (something with video but ignorable) so the console doesn't appear to get released -- but you can actually type in another command so my error there as I thought console was locked. I need to look at sockets and Dbus stuff but essentially works.


    I need to do a bit more work on this to make it better but I'm sure I'll get somewhere with it.

    For X-server you need to set to connect to no client and use multiple windows. You need in the console to create this file too : echo "export DISPLAY=:0.0" >> ~/.bashrc

    X-server config (after running it will sit in the background). Using VcXsrv as x-server for windows.

    Hi folks

    Themes work again on this build -- I don't like that sort of opaque one. !!!

    Now :

    You can have some reall good fun with WSL on this build -- if you can get an X-Server (for Windows) running you can install a load of windowed desktop GUI Linux programs including network access via SAMBA (actually that works when standard networking breaks too !!!.

    You need to configure the X-Server for windows for multi windows and don't connect to a specific client. Start it and will then run in the background. Now simply open the ubuntu console and type the application you want to run -- window will appear automatically -- you need (at the moment) to open a new console for each application you want to run. I'm playing around with whether I can get a full blown desktop GUJI on this thing but I've made a start !!

    Here's 4 Linux windowed programs running concurrently on WSL (File manager showing samba network connections, Deluge - a Linux bit torrent client, Grsync - backup type of program and I think people will know this one - spider !!!.

    This is actually much more fun than I though possible and with a bit more tinkering it could be quite useful when you don't need a full blown VM !!!!

    Attachment 225052

    If people are interested I can make a tutorial on this once I've refined it a bit better. !!
    Cheers
    Are you using Xming for your Windows X Server or have you found anything better?

    Hi there

    X-server i'm using is VcXsrv

    you can also mount network drives without samba (although samba works) in wsl with

    $ sudo mount -t drvfs '\\server\share' /mnt/share

    you can if you want also mount usb external devices with the drvfs file system that wsl uses

    e.g for a USB drive on D.

    $ sudo mkdir /mnt/d
    $ sudo mount -t drvfs D: /mnt/d

    to unmount it safely

    $ sudo umount /mnt/d

    Cheers

    That is normal practice in software development. There could be multiple branches working on different things completely separate from each other. At some point a part from one branch merge with another when that particular part is done.

    I see absolutely no issue with this.
    I know, I have led such teams - it is the team leaders who eat ninja cat flavoured tacos circle jerking over emojis that worry me.
