    Seamless mode seems to be not working in my Win-Kex 2.0

    Hi all,
    I recently updated a WSL2 Kali installation to get the new Win-Kex 2.0.
    I used sudo apt upgrade && sudo apt install -y kali-win-kex and everything seemed to work fine.
    Now, in windows mode I can log-in without any issue as before, while in seamless mode I can't.
    Sometimes (normally at the beginning) I get:
    Checking /home/<name>/.cache/sessions/xfce4-session-<IP>:0 Enabling SL mode
    Waited 100 seconds for desktop, giving up
    Saving Win-KeX SL session
    Started Win-KeX SL
    I tried also with option -w but without success.

    Sometimes, e.g. if I first login in windows mode and then exit the viewer, trying to connect again with --sl I get:
    Checking /home/<name>/.cache/sessions/xfce4-session-<IP>:0
    Enabling SL mode
    Desktop started after 1 seconds, enabling transparency now
    Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused
    Failed to parse arguments: Cannot open display

    The /tmp/win-kexsl-log reports:
    Cannot move old log file "/tmp/win-kexsl.log" to "/tmp/win-kexsl.log.old"
    _XSERVTransSocketCreateListener: failed to bind listener
    _XSERVTransSocketINETCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
    _XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to create listener for inet6
    _XSERVTransSocketCreateListener: failed to bind listener
    _XSERVTransSocketINETCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
    _XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to create listener for inet
    (EE)
    Fatal server error:
    (EE) Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running(EE)
    (EE) Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.




    Is anybody able to help me?

    I am having the same issue.

    I am having the exact same issue as you. I understand this post is almost half a year old, but did you ever find a fix? Here is a screenshot of my console output. I can run windowed fine, but seamless is not working. Please get back to me if you find a way to fix this. Thanks.
