HyperV with ubuntu not starting any GUI

Hello

I'm running a HyperV with ubuntu on my windows machine.
On windows I have the server running, and on the ubuntu in HyperV I'm expecting the client to run.

I'm having an issue where nothing happens when I'm running the client.
Firstly i've tried to run
sudo chmod -x ./whuit32
then running ./whuit32

I would be epecting a GUI, but nothing happens, just a new promt in the terminal.

So I tried:
./whuit32 -t "LIST"
but nothing.

I found another post and tested:
$ wget https://www.virtualhere.com/sites/default/files/usbclient/vhuit64
chmod +x ./vhuit64
./vhuit64
with the result:
Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
installed it and tried:
./vhuit64

majo@majo-Virtual-Machine:~/bin/virtualHere$ ./vhuit64 -t "LIST"
VirtualHere Client IPC, below are the available devices:
(Value in brackets = address, * = Auto-Use)

(172.18.18.225:7575)

Auto-Find currently on
Auto-Use All currently off
Reverse Lookup currently off
Reverse SSL Lookup currently off
VirtualHere Client not running as a service

So i don't get the GUi, nor do i get the USB devices from my computer.
Any advice?

You are writing whuit64 instead of vhuit64 and you are running a 32-bit and then trying a 64-bit version?

What exact version of ubuntu are you running

uname -a

and send the output

Hi again

Hi again
i check my processes and found two processes with vhuit. Obviously me trying to get things running, wo knowing exactly what to do.
So i killed those and retried and got the following result
majo@majo-Virtual-Machine:~/bin/virtualHere$ sudo ./vhuit64

(vhuit64:19424): IBUS-WARNING **: 12:34:11.551: The owner of /home/majo/.config/ibus/bus is not root!

(vhuit64:19424): IBUS-WARNING **: 12:34:11.570: Unable to connect to ibus: Unexpected lack of content trying to read a line

Should i change mod on the file / folder or somehow change my user?

MagnusJohansson
So I removed the bus folder

So I removed the bus folder by rm -R bus
by tips from this link: https://askubuntu.com/questions/325274/why-do-i-get-ibus-warning-on-runn...

I'm now getting the gui to run on Ubuntu, the server to run on Windows but the connection inbetween does not seem to work, I get no Hubsin ubuntu.

Try right clicking on USB Hubs->Specify Hubs and put in the IP address of the host

MagnusJohansson
Thats done, but without

Thats done, but without success.

When i type in the LIST command I occasionly get:
majo@majo-Virtual-Machine:~/bin/virtualHere$ ./vhuit64 -t "LIST"
VirtualHere Client IPC, below are the available devices:
(Value in brackets = address, * = Auto-Use)

(172.18.18.225:7575)

Auto-Find currently on
Auto-Use All currently off
Reverse Lookup currently on
Reverse SSL Lookup currently off
VirtualHere Client not running as a service

And somethimes I get no hit at all.

If i specify the IP the Gui still does not find it.
Will the Hyper V go through internet or directly to my local computer to connect?
I've also tried eayfind without success.

Your host is not at 172... , its probably something else, or you have a firewall in the way or something.

If it just shows that line then its trying but not yet connected because you cant see any devices.

MagnusJohansson
Thanks for your support

Thanks for your support Michael

172... is the internal IP number used by the HyperV switch, so what I did was to enter the IP from my hyperV client (ubuntu) into the windows server (by using the windows client) as a reverse client.
Then I got the usb info into Ubuntu.
