When will Manjaro support Microsoft Store and WSL2?

I am willing to use Manjaro with Win10 and WSL2 will be a good choice. But I cannot find it in the Microsoft store (and Arch Linux either). When will Manjaro support Microsoft Store and WSL2? Are the developers working on this?

Hi,
There is a ArchWSL project on GitHub


Not Manjaro though, but it’s the closest option.

Nope…

Looks like there is a Manjaro Github project now:
https://github.com/sileshn/ManjaroWSL

^^ this is based off the wsldl project, so many other distros are supported, check out the list:

lmao, I thought you were talking about being able to “run” Microsoft store in Manjaro… :sweat_smile:

You can build your own base image that can be imported into WSL. See below:

The idea is basically the same as @jonathon explained in his legacy forum thread. You just need to follow steps 2, 3 and 4 for creating the image.

Note that step 4 needs to be modified so that tar archives to a file rather than piping the output into docker. This resulting tarball file will be your distribution rootfs that can be easily imported into WSL2.
