how can i grant the permisions

Did you assign the New user you have created to have SUDO rights ?

This happens because the current user through which you are trying to install the ERPNext does not have sudo rights.

Did you do as follows :slight_smile:

  1. Creations of user with sudo rights.
     sudo adduser *Your_USERNAME* 
     sudo usermod -aG sudo *Your_USERNAME*

Hello, i’m trying to install Erpnext in Ubuntu 20.04 on WSL2.

and i didn’t find solution. Can you help me?
Seems in wsl2 are there problems with localhost?

also I found the redhat_family file to edit in to /tmp/.bench/bench/… so I don’t know if there are problems also for that

@Ido_Traini Please run the installation command with --Verbose

This will give you more detailed logs. The logs you shared are not enough to troubleshoot.

Creations of user with sudo rights.

     sudo adduser *Your_USERNAME* 
     sudo usermod -aG sudo *Your_USERNAME*

sudo python3 install.py --production --user Your_USERNAME --mariadb-version 10.5 --verbose

Naming the user as ERPNEXT is not an issue, just it is not safe, since lots of attackers would try to attack this username.

@Nikunj_Patel
I’ve lanched the installation as verbose and maked again installation with different username
Here the complete log (i had to remove initial part due limitation of the reply character space)

Hi @Ido_Traini
I guess you should follow the step below.

1) open file install.py 
2) find "mariadb_version" then change default to "10.5".

Hi @signail thanks for you effort, but this don’t help. Also, in the suggested command it is specified that you will use mariadb-version 10.5 and this overwrite the default setting.

Problem is that in wsl2 the systemd is not active, so it cannot create a bus connection: no host, no installation (sorry, my english is rugged and my knowledge of linux is not enough to use the right terms).
I’ve found this script: https://github.com/DamionGans/ubuntu-wsl2-systemd-script

that resolve the problem. Tomorrow I will try with a fresh Ubuntu WSL2 installation, with the script and without manipulating at all the install.py.

Now the new error (i’ve reported the “red” part):

  1. If you face ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘erpnext .

Follow this https://medium.com/@binodpaneru23/setting-up-erpnext-in-mac-os-c475466f5403

Based on this doc I used

frappe-bench/env/bin/pip3 install -U -e ./apps/erpnext

Thanks @arun992 for steps 5 and 6

  1. if you get stuck with Cython is required to compile pandas from a development branch. error.
    Check this post [https://github.com/frappe/erpnext/issues/22424 ]

Based on this doc use the following commands:

frappe-bench/env/bin/pip3 install pandas==0.24.2
frappe-bench/env/bin/pip install numpy==1.18.5

After this use

frappe-bench/env/bin/pip3 install -U -e ./apps/erpnext

Oncef inished the erpnext installationcontinue with the command

sudo frappe-bench/env/bin/python3 temp --production --user frappe --mariadb-version 10.5 --verbose

ERROR: ./apps/erpnext is not a valid editable requirement. It should either be a path to a local project or a VCS URL (beginning with bzr+http, bzr+https, bzr+ssh, bzr+sftp, bzr+ftp, bzr+lp, bzr+file, git+http, git+https, git+ssh, git+git, git+file, hg+file, hg+http, hg+https, hg+ssh, hg+static-http, svn+ssh, svn+http, svn+https, svn+svn, svn+file).

Note also I haven’t a Mac, but a Windows 10 wls2 envirnoment.

@Ido_Traini Erpnext is not made for working on such platforms. It is highly recommended to use the Linux based OS for installation and testing ERPNEXT.

However there are some brave souls who has tried making ERPNEXT work with WSL environment, please check the link below for more understanding.

@Nikunj_Patel
wsl2 is a virtual machine and there are no reasons because erpnext cannot run on it. There are details to resolve, sure, as always when you want to work with linux.
I’m trying to do it, for me and for anyone want to use erpnext on wls2. I think this is the right approach on open-source material, but this is your topic and I will stop to post questions and found solutions.

Only a note: regarding the command:
frappe-bench/env/bin/pip3 install -U -e ./apps/erpnext

perhaps it can be useful to know that it is not correct, at least on my platform. Correct command is:

frappe-bench/env/bin/pip3 install -U -e ./frappe-bench/apps/erpnext

regards.

@Ido_Traini yes you are right to use open source as you deem fit, but as instructions from the core developers are clear that the current version installation via install.py script works best with ubunutu 18.04, Centos8 and debian. Anything else would require some hack. This is what I tried to do when I installed it on ubunut20.04. (this installation procedure is true for ERPNEXT 12 version. Version 13 might need some tweaking because there is lots of new things in it.)

Since all this OS behaves little different than others + lots of custom application installed on any given machine, it is impossible to have installation script to have 1 size fits all mode.

I have already shared a post of installing ERPNEXT12 on WSL on windows 10. If that might help you in anyway.

Anyways best of luck in your troubleshooting and if at all you find something working with your WSL please create a post and share it with community, just in case some core team developer might get something important from it in future.

@Nikunj_Patel
I’ve just concluded with success installation on Ubuntu 20.04 in wls2 environment. Your suggestions contain some command errors but with minimum tweaking it is possible.

now I will retry the procedure in a fresh installation and I will create a new post as reference for whatever want o need to do the same.
Thanks for your work.

Glad to know this works for you. I am a novice and tried it and didn’t work and since I’m unabke to dual boot my PC I’m unable to try it out. I will be looking forward to your post where you have a fail proof approach and also possible you try for v13?

@tobsowo sure. I will try for a fresh install later this week and post my sequence, but it will be mostly similar at the @Nikunj_Patel instructions.

Also, I’ve tried with this: Install v13 Production on Ubuntu 20.04 VPS - This is how I did it "Easy Install" script
and I was able to complete the installation (but I have actually some problems with DB).

In both cases, just remember to install this script before: https://github.com/DamionGans/ubuntu-wsl2-systemd-script for activate the systemd.

Cool. I will check that out. Thank you.

I tried using the script to activate systemd but did not work, here is what I have

Did you tried to control if all ok? You have to restart Ubuntu e launch systemctl. If it runs (quit with “q”), you have installed the script

Sorry, didn’t get that can you help with the command to run?
