    I'm having a very difficult time with file permissions in WSL.

    Punch it in the dick

    :D
    I just realized that it may be an issue with BitDefender.
    So I'm trying to solve that, first.

    Sorry @kurtmilam Linux and I have a love, hate relationship

    I have a love hate relationship with BitDefender.
    Scott Spence
    @spences10
    Can you sudo set permission?
    That's basically punching it in the dick 🙃
    Kurt Milam
    @kurtmilam
    permissions look OK. I think BitDefender is interfering.
    by OK, I mean 777 on all files under /mnt.
    Ethan Smith
    @ethanhs
    There are also issues setting permissions on the NTFS Windows mount in the WSL
    Kurt Milam
    @kurtmilam
    ATM, I have confirmed that Bitdefender is interfering when WSL tries to interact with Windows files.
    I have filed a support ticket with Bitdefender. I told them an inoperable computer is probably the safest computer w/r/t viruses and malware, but it's not very useful.
    Perhaps it's time to invest in an abacus.

    Honestly, I find most AVs more of a pain for little or no advantage. I use Windows Defender
    Kurt Milam
    @kurtmilam
    I used Windows Defender until Microsoft borked it with an update and I got a virus.
    Ethan Smith
    @ethanhs
    Well, that is fair
    Kurt Milam
    @kurtmilam
    Yeah, I'm looking for a write up about it, but it's been a while and I can't recall exactly when it occurred. Probably late 2015.
    A specific update to Windows 10 erratically disabled Windows Defender. I read about it at the time, trying to figure out how I'd gotten a virus while running Windows Defender.
    Ethan Smith
    @ethanhs
    That is bizarre
    Kurt Milam
    @kurtmilam
    I was surprised it didn't get more press or lead to a class action lawsuit. I lost valuable data and several days recovering from the virus infection, and I'm not the only person I know who was hit.
    I had cancelled my previous AV subscription (Vipre way back then) and depended on Windows Defender for some time after reading that Defender was solid enough to handle the job. I purchased a Bitdefender subscription after Defender fell over and I got bit.
    Kurt Milam
    @kurtmilam
    Actually, after spending several days trying to remove the virus with no success, I paid someone else to do it, so I lost time, money and valuable data. Makes me angry just thinking about it. Also, as you can see from the article, it was late 2014 and a Windows 7 update. I didn't recall it being that long ago, but that's the one that wiped me out.

    is there any walkthrough for configuring php-fpm using unix socks on WSL ?

    Windows Defender is killing my system while compiling. It's frigging unusable to use automake and autoconf ... FreeRadius 3.0.x takes over an hour on a Surface Book i7 to run. Adding bash.exe and lxss to the exclusions doesn't help at all it seems. Anyone have a solution to this?
    Scott Spence
    @spences10
    @darrenstarr I have come across something similar on my Asus transformer i7 as well

    I was wondering if it'd be acceptable to split up python between 2.x and 3.x in the overall list
    Peter Watson
    @Plew
    I have a surface pro, starting a project that requires Git, Python 2.x, Django 1.11, pip, PostgreSQL, Node.js and npm. Should I stick with windows or try to work in linux, I could either set up a vagrant, vm ubuntu, dualboot ubuntu, or WSL ubuntu what do yall think would be best?
    Darren R. Starr
    @darrenstarr
    @Plew I suppose breathing some life here would be good. For the platform you're mentioning, I would highly recommend using WSL. You're not doing anything which requires absolute kernel compatibility. Can I recommend you consider using Docker instead since making a project like this on Docker/Docker Swarm is ridiculously easy. I use WSL from within Visual Studio Code for pretty much everything these days. And to be honest, your project sounds like it is meant specifically for Docker and Swarm. The only think you'd need to do fancy to make it work is to ensure that your PostgreSQL data is non-volatile. This is really very easy to accomplish with some form of persistent volumes.

    I've been using the WSL for the last several months as my primary development env, I genuinely love it. Have yet to have any issues with it so far either.
    Something I want to point out though, the overall I/O still leaves something to be desired though. if you're executing code ( compiling stuff from source is where I see the most slowdown...) inside the WSL, it can get slow.

    I recently downloaded the Windows Subsystem for Linux (Ubuntu) and want to set the theme to Seashells (https://github.com/mbadolato/iTerm2-Color-Schemes) for the default terminal. I put the theme into my linux ~/.Xresources file and tried to run xrdb -load .Xresources but then I got that xrdb: Can't open display ''. I was wondering how to actually just set the theme or if I have to use a terminal emulator like wsltty. In properties, it seems like you can only set the colors for the screen/popup text and background, but the .Xresources file has a lot more than just 4 colors and I'm a bit confused about that.
