Installation of Ubuntu Linux on Windows 10

PART 1 - Installing Linux on Windows 10

Open PowerShell as administrator and type the following 

Enable‐WindowsOptionalFeature ‐Online ‐FeatureName Microsoft‐Windows‐Subsystem‐Linux 

Reboot once prompted to do so 

Next, if you’re on build 1625 or later, you can just use the link below to get the installer for Ubuntu,  it will open in the Windows Store 

Windows Store Ubuntu Link  

Once downloaded, you can click the Launch button in the store, you should now also add this your desktop/start menu/taskbar for easy access

PART 2 - Getting it all up and running

Once you have followed the PART 1 guide to install WSL and Ubuntu, do a complete reboot of your computer before going any further.

Now that you are up and running with Linux, you will need to install the following applications to enable everything to work with “Deejayeye-Modder” patching application.

Run the following commands from a “Bash Shell” one at a time:

sudo apt‐get update && sudo apt‐get upgrade  (Run this straight after build and it will pull down any updates) then reboot again.

Then proceed to install the other elements you are going to need?

  • sudo apt-get install build-essential
  • sudo apt-get install dos2unix
  • sudo apt-get install bspatch
  • sudo apt-get install default-jre (or jdk – I only do jre)
  • sudo apt-get install webp
  • sudo apt-get install imagemagick
  • sudo apt-get install dialog
  • sudo apt-get install python
  • sudo apt-get install xmlstartlet

Or, you can just run this

sudo apt‐get install build‐essential dos2unix bspatch default‐jre webp imagemagick dialog python  xmlstarlet 

You probably know that Sudo is just escalating permissions to admin level. If you get an issue with “Sudo”, run the command: sudo passwd root and follow onscreen prompts, this will allow you to set a new Sudo password.

Once you have installed all the above (should only take a few mins), you will now want to play with the patch system.

Here is what I did. Having downloaded the latest version of “Deejayeye-Modder” from Github, and decompressed the file, I then copied the whole of the “Deejayeye-Modder” directory to my C:\ Drive.

so I end up with C:\Deejayeye-modder

NOTE: Capitalisation is extremely important in linux, so match the upper and/or lower case letters in the commands and directory/filenames.

In WSL you access your C: drive with the following command, and in particular the Mod directory:

 cd /mnt/c/deejayeye-modder

List the contents by issuing the command “ls

To make sure the file “” is executable, run “chmod 755 won’t see anything) To execute the command, precede it with ./ so becomes ./

Other useful commands:

  • cd ~ Returns you to your home directory
  • cd .. Drops you back one directory at a time
  • help Usual screen full of useful information
  • exit Shuts down box and gives you back Windows
  • mkdir make dir
  • rmdir remove dir

Everything else….. Google’s your friend. Some interesting articles out there on using Linux.

And if you are interested in taking the WSL system even further, you can add a GUI front end to it, and run many more useful applications….. Get to know Linux ….. You'll love it.
