Opening the graph window in root

root [0] TF1 f1(“func1”,“x”,0,10)
(TF1 &) Name: func1 Title: x
root [1] f1.Draw()
Info in TCanvas::MakeDefCanvas>: created default TCanvas with name c1
root [2]

Im trying to get started with ROOT. Im using bash, with ubuntu on WSL.
I tried to open a graph but nothing happens when i type that code.

ROOT Version: 6.32.02
Platform: Ubuntu on WSL
Compiler: cmake?

You also have to install an X server (e.g. VcXsrv) and run Xlaunch before opening the Ubuntu window. See here for configuration:

An alternative is to install ROOT directly on Windows, then you do not need to care about a WSL / X server, etc.

Can I use Xming, and if I do how do I connect the X server to root

It should be very similar, if not the same configuration as for VcXsrv; just try it and if it’s not the same, check the Xming documentation for the equivalent features.
