Install Ubuntu on Windows 10

Installing Windows 10 WSL Ubuntu 20.04 on Windows 10 (2004)

Type Powershell in the search / Start and select Run as Administrator


In the Powershell window that opens, copy and paste the following command:

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

(right-clicking on the window will run automatically)


Type Y to restart


After the reboot, run the Microsoft Store and search for the term Ubuntu


From the results select Ubuntu or Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (there is no difference) and then click Download


When completed, press Start


A new window titled Ubuntu appears and the installation is complete


Asks us to enter a username (Username) and set a password (Password)


Once the process is complete:


Μία πρώτη εντολή που μπορούμε να εκτελέσουμε ει η:

sudo apt-get install

The word sudo before the command means that we execute it with Administrator rights. The apt-get install example command upgrades software packages.

We can copy and paste it into the Ubuntu window. When we press Enter, it asks us to enter the password we gave for our account



Note: Proxy Setup

In my case, I use a proxy to access the internet. After installation, I had to configure my system to "see" the network through the proxy.

The command we use in this case is:

sudo nano apt.conf

With this option we open the apt.conf file for editing.

Add the following line

Acquire :: http :: Proxy "http: // username: password @ proxyaddress: port";


username: password the username and password we use to log in (skip it if it does not exist)

proxyaddress is the full address of the proxy

port the door number


Press Ctrl + O to save and Ctrl + X to exit.
