  1. Persistant "update notifier" message in Ubuntu under WSL2


    I am running Ubuntu using WSL2. I am forever getting a popup message in Ubuntu from "Update notifier" telling me "Reboot is needed", but after powering down Ubuntu and restarting using the Ubuntu GUI, I keep getting this message. How can I stop it?

    I am running Ubuntu 20.04 on Windows 2004.

    :)

  2. WSL2 for windows

    I have failed into installing WSL for Windows. I have read here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win.../install-win10 how to do it, and at step 4:


    1. Download the latest package:
      [COLOR=var(--text)][COLOR=var(--info-dark)] Note[/COLOR]
      If you're using an ARM64 machine, please download the ARM64 package instead. If you're not sure what kind of machine you have, open Command Prompt or PowerShell and enter: systeminfo | find "System Type".
      [/COLOR]
    2. Run the update package downloaded in the previous step. (Double-click to run - you will be prompted for elevated permissions, select ‘yes’ to approve this installation.)

    I encountered:

  3. WSL2 and new Windows Terminal not working with VPN

    For most of my apps I don't want to use a VPN. So I have a VPN client that supports split tunneling so I can choose whether I want it to use VPN or not on app by app basis.

    The VPN client works fine with different apps but when I try to set it up with Ubuntu WSL/2 and new Window Terminal app (by selecting both Ubuntu 20.04 LTS WSL2 app and the Windows Terminal App)... it doesn't work. When I check IP from Ubuntu WSL2 bash
    terminal (using "curl ifconfig.me") it shows my real IP rather than the VPN ip (the VPN split tunnel works fine when I try to use it with Powershell via Windows Terminal).

    What exact apps do I need to chose for the WSL2 Ubuntu terminal to work with the split tunnel VPN?

    Ubuntu terminal not displaying git messages correctly

    Hi Patrick,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that the output for Ubuntu terminal is not showing properly for GIT commands.



    I suggest you to try re-enabling Windows Subsystem for Linux and then uninstalling and re-installing Ubuntu from Microsoft Store. Follow the steps to disable Windows Subsystem for Linux and uninstall Ubuntu.



    Disable Windows Subsystem for Linux:



    1. Press Windows key + R. This will open
      Run. Alternatively, you can go to Start and search for Run.
    2. In Run dialog box, type
      appwiz.cpl
      and hit enter.
    3. Now on the left hand pane click on
      Turn Windows features on or off.
    4. Now on the Windows feature window scroll down and uncheck the box next to
      Windows Subsystem for Linux.
    5. Click on OK and Restart the PC.


    Uninstall the Ubuntu app:



    1. Go to Settings >
      Apps > Apps & features.
    2. Now search for Ubuntu app.
    3. Click on the app and click on
      Uninstall
      .
    4. Follow the onscreen instructions.


    To enable the Windows Subsystem for Linux you can refer the article

    Windows Subsystem for Linux Installation Guide for Windows 10
    .



    If the issue persists, I suggest you to post your query on

    TechNet forums
    as they have dedicated support for issues related to Windows Subsystem for Linux.



    Hope it helps.
