Manually installing xmodules in docker

Hi, I have a pretty unique setup and I want to install Xmodules, but the Appimage won’t work for me; I likely need to install Xmodules manually.

I have a docker container (ubuntu, 18) running on Windows (WSL 2). I can’t use Appimage because I can’t use FUSE; There’s no kernel to insert modules into.

I’ve tried:

So now I’m trying to figure out where to place the files manually to install them.

Can you tell me where to place the files from the AppImage?

In the mean time I’ll try to figure out the install script.


The files can be placed anywhere. The installation shell script will tell the browser(s) where to find the XModules.

By default appimage runs the shell script, but of course you can run it manually as well.
