Mintty 2.8.0 simplifies WSL integration a lot.
In Cygwin, you can simply start e.g. mintty --WSL=Ubuntu (add -~ to start in the WSL home).
Does it mean that 2.8.0 does not need wslbridge [*] any more?
No, sorry, I forgot to mention that wslbridge would have to be installed in /bin to make this work.
As it is not a Cygwin package, I have installed wslbridge in /usr/local/bin/,
which is in the system Path in Windows format, so also in the Cygwin path in
Unix format - will this work?
No, sorry again. Mintty assumes /bin/wslbridge as a fixed location. A cygwin package for wslbridge would be good, on this occasion. Or simply copy it there.
