Rstudio-server from the Windows Subsystem for Linux




I just got Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS running on my Windows Subsystem for Linux on a Windows 10 machine. I am now trying to run RStudio Server from Ubuntu. R version 3.4.4 is installed and functional. I can even connect Visual Studio to the R environment in Windows Subsystem.

I am getting errors when I try to verify the rstudio-server installation:

~$ sudo rstudo-server verify-installation
13 Apr 2018 17:44:51 [rserver] WARNING Unable to change rserver into app armor restricted hat (profile may be disabled);  LOGGED FROM: rstudio::core::Error rstudio::server::app_armor::enforceRestricted() /home/ubuntu/rstudio/src/cpp/server/ServerAppArmor.cpp:85

The odd thing is that apparmor does not even seem to be running:

~$ sudo apparmor_status
apparmor module is not loaded. 

I have seen some similar problems posted around the web, but nothing that quite matches my issue.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!
