Post subject:  Running Linux PureBasic on windows 10 using WSL

I've managed to fire up PureBasic on my windows machine, using the windows 10 WSL layer :)

If anyone else is interested in trying this out... Here's how:

- Install the WSL layer in windows ( https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... tall-win10 )
- Install Ubuntu from the windows store ( https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/ubunt ... verviewtab )
- Install XFCE and XRDP using these commands:
sudo apt-get install xfce4 xrdp
sudo sed -i 's/port=3389/port=3390/g' /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini
sudo service xrdp start

- Connect to the local XRDP session. Using Remote desktop, connect to localhost:3390
- Install PureBasic as you would on regular Ubuntu, and enyjoy!

Optionally..... If you wanted it to look more integrated, and run inside of windows... you can follow this guide to take your installation outside of xfce, to run Linux PureBasic in windows, as it's own window:
