No graphical output, no errors either. (Ubuntu on WSL)

ROOT Version: 6.18/04
Platform: Ubuntu on WSL
Compiler: GCC (I think)


I am making my way through a youtube tutorial from ACU Engineering and Physics.

Firstly, I notice that when I start ROOT, the splash screen with the lady figure does not appear as it does in the videos. Next, I have attempted to use TF1 to make a simple graph, and although it looks like it processed correctly with no errors, I get no graphical output.

This is from my bash shell:

root [0] f = new TF1("f", "x^2 - sin(x)*exp(-x/2) +1", -2, 2)
(TF1 *) @0x7fffd87feea8
root [1] f->Draw()
Info in <TCanvas::MakeDefCanvas>:  created default TCanvas with name c1

These are the setup instructions I followed to install ROOT with Ubuntu on WSL

Any ideas?

Ohhh I didn’t have Xming running! Silly me.
