Open SIte Shell in WSL2

What issue or error are you experiencing?

Hello i am on Windows, using WSL2 Debian,

Is there a way to, when you click into Open Site Shell, it actually opens a new WSL shell window instead of doing nothing ?

Thanks.

Hello @aldersonellia - welcome to the Local community! :wave:

Thank you for your question.

What do you have set as your default terminal?

You can find that under Local > Settings > Default apps.

Thanks!

Hi @sambrockway,

I’m joining @aldersonellia because I have exactly the same problem. The Go to site folder link works, but when trying to open a site shell nothing happens. I set up a brand new WSL2 environment (Ubuntu 22.04) and installed the latest version of Local (8.2.1).

In Local (Ubuntu) I don’t have a Default apps section, whereas in Local (Win 11) I can change the terminal, see screenshot attached

Best regards

Hello @aldersonellia and @rikhen -

Can either of you provide the Local Logs? You can get a zip of those logs by clicking the “Download Local Log” button from the “Support” tab of Local. See this help doc for more information:

That way we can see if there are any errors being thrown, etc.

Thanks!

Sam

Hi @sambrockway,

The download did not work, so I had to manually zip the two log files. Please see archive attached.
