Mate Desktop GUI on WSL2: XtigerVNC issue

Hello Mate experts,

I found the following post about installing the Mate Desktop GUI on top of Ubuntu 20.04 in WSL2 but can‘t get it working yet.

Now I got the following issue after entering:
sudo vncserver -geometry 1920×1080 :0

vncserver: /usr/bin/Xtigervnc did not start up, please look into ‘/home/USER/.vnc/MACHINE.localdomain:1.log’ to determine the reason! -1
Killing Xtigervnc process ID 13938… success!

MACHINE.localdomain:1.log contents is as follows:

Xvnc TigerVNC 1.10.0 – built Apr 9 2020 06:49:31

Any ideas from your side what could be the root cause and if yes, how I could try to solve it?

Just found another post: vncserver dies immediately upon start.

Will check if I find the same stupid line
vncserver -kill $DISPLAY
exists in the start script, where this doesn’t make any sense.

Wonder how that’s possible ...

Instead of trying to fix the XtigerVNC issue I will try a different approach using the GWSL Windows app which simply installs and runs an Xserver based on VCXSRV.
