A step by step tutorial on how to automatically start ssh server on boot on the Windows Subsystem for Linux running Ubuntu 18.04

How to automatically start ssh server on boot on Windows Subsystem for Linux

This works with Ubuntu 18.04LTS. I make no promises about other distributions, but direct anyone else to an older Gist which apparently works for 16.04LTS.

Microsoft partnered with Canonical to create Bash on Ubuntu on Windows, running through a technology called the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Below are instructions on how to set up the ssh server to run automatically at boot.

  1. Uninstall and reinstall the ssh server using the following commands:
    1. sudo apt remove openssh-server
    2. sudo apt install openssh-server
  2. With this setup, the ssh server must be turned on every time you run Bash on Ubuntu on Windows, as by default it is off. Use this command to turn it on:

The right way to override any highlighting if you don't want to edit the colorscheme file directly

Suppose you have weird taste and you absolutely want:

  • your visual selection to always have a green background and black foreground,
  • your active statusline to always have a white background and red foreground,
  • your very own deep blue background.

Your first reflex is probably to put those lines somewhere in your vimrc:

highlight Visual cterm=NONE ctermbg=76 ctermfg=16 gui=NONE guibg=#5fd700 guifg=#000000
highlight StatusLine cterm=NONE ctermbg=231 ctermfg=160 gui=NONE guibg=#ffffff guifg=#d70000
