Linux X11 GUI programs often work great on Windows Subsystem for Linux. Install a Windows X11 server to enable graphical Linux applications on Windows as follows:
Install VcXsrv and add to WSL
DISPLAY=:0.0 export DISPLAY
To run any X11 Linux GUI app in WSL, start VcXsrv first from Windows. You don’t have to do this before starting WSL.
- do NOT open a port in your firewall for X11 if asked by Windows.
