Previously, I wrote a article about how to use X server, CCSM, Compiz and other components with Bash On Ubuntu On Windows to run Linux desktop environment from Windows desktop. Recently, I find a improved way of installing the LDE.

Retrieved from this post in BashOnWindows GitHub site.

First things first…

Run following code on Bash On Windows:

1
echo "export DISPLAY=:0.0" >> ~/.bashrc

And run the following code as root user:

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

it is really important to run the code as root user, otherwise the code won’t work

For Ubuntu

  1. Install VcXsrv and open XLaunch. Choose “One large window” with display number as 0.
    Other settings leave as default and finish the configuration.

  2. Now open bash, install Ubuntu Dekstop Environment, Unity and Compiz Config Settings Manager:

    1
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop unity compizconfig-settings-manager

    and type ccsm to open Compiz Configuration Settings Manager.

  3. Inside ccsm mouse pointer may be not visible due to icon not loaded. Enable the following plugins.

  4. Now close ccsm and open compiz to start Unity Linux Desktop Environment.

  5. To exit from Ubuntu close bash or kill compiz, the only way of closing Ubuntu.

For XUbuntu

  1. Install VcXsrv and open XLaunch. Choose “One large window” or other options you like with display number as 0.
    Other settings leave as default and finish the configuration.

  2. Install xorg and xubuntu:

    1
    sudo apt-get install xorg xubuntu-desktop

    This might take a while to complete.

  3. After success installation, open xfce4-session to start Xubuntu Desktop Environment.

  4. To exit from XUbuntu close bash, the only way of closing xubuntu.
