Installation prob

I tried to install root more than once, but didn’t work correctly, can anyone guide me step by step please? i have windows64- x64

Hello @mutaz ,

and welcome to the ROOT forum. You can find Windows installation instructions in each release’s page, e.g. here: Release 62606 - ROOT .

You can also install ROOT under that Windows Subsystem for Linux, see here: Complete ROOT Installation Instructions for WSL (Ubuntu 18.04 on Windows 10) - #3 by eguiraud .

Cheers,
Enrico

i try to run linux subsystem on my windows ( ubaunu)

Did you follow the instructions given on the pages @eguiraud pointed to?
The screen dump you posted is not very informative in that sense.

Shouldn’t it be ls instead of 1s ?

What do you get in the Canvas with these commands ?

@couet This is a Windows machine (and WSL), I bet the “X Server” is not running.

Given that the original installation problem is gone, I’ll mark as solved this topic.
