On a Windows machine, I have WSL2 installed and working. I believe I can use the WSL2 shell as my terminal in RStudio desktop (note, I am not trying to run RStudio in WSL2, at least not yet). However, although I have seen screenshots where WSL bash appears as an option for the terminal (Global Options / Terminal), it does not show as an option for me. This is what I see:
Am I missing a trick to make WSL appear as a terminal option as in the screenshot mentioned above?
Note that inside RStudio, I can can run
wsl commands inside the
system function, and that works, showing that WSL is working and usable in a sense in RStudio.
