  1. if xfce4-session: Cannot open display you need to hover in the tray on the VcXsrv icon and see the full display port name. In ubuntu, write for example as I had export DISPLAY =: DESKTOP-0P76: 0.0 and then xfce4-session will be working

  2. I did everything you did "verbatum" and I can type bash and I get "Windows subsystem for linux has no installed distributions"? Why? Any ideas. Your video was great but my Windows is acting weird. >>>15 minutes later>>> (Just figured it out) I run "lxrun /install" and it allowed the install.

  3. Hi

    Good tutorial. It works perfectly for me. Thanks!

    However, I would like to work with GNOME. After installing it, I run the command gnome-session, but I got the following error:

    ** (gnome-session-check-accelerated:576): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to accessibility bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-XGJJpOePpd: Connection refused

    Any hints?
    Thanks in advance!

  4. I am doing it exactly the way you do in the video.

    However, if I start 'xfce4-session' it tells me 'xfce4-session: Cannot open display: . '.
    Any idea how to fix it? :-/
