I have a device that runs linux in the background. I am working on the code on my windows 10 machine in Qt. Qt takes up A LOT of space and time, so much so that I do not dare dual boot my laptop to install Qt there to test.
We want to use onboard for our onscreen keyboard because of its customization. I have been running the ubuntu subsystem for windows 10 and have installed onboard. However, when I try to run it, I get:
hermes@DESKTOP-A66D2I7:~$ onboard &  2204 hermes@DESKTOP-A66D2I7:~$ Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused (onboard:2204): Gdk-WARNING **: 10:33:05.682: cannot open display:
I have visited this site: https://askubuntu.com/questions/768508/cant-launch-graphical-apps-from-terminal-after-updating-to-15-10, where I tried the commands in the two answers but to no avail. I do not have a file that is named .Xauthority.
Does anybody have a solution, or must I uninstall Qt and return to using ubuntu as my daily OS? Thanks.
