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