In summary, installing FLUKA on Windows 10 using Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and Ubuntu 20.04 involves setting up WSL, installing Ubuntu 20.04, and then downloading and installing FLUKA through the Ubuntu terminal. It is important to ensure that WSL is enabled and that the proper dependencies are installed before attempting to install FLUKA. Once installed, FLUKA can be run through the Ubuntu terminal and can be used for simulations and analyses in a Windows 10 environment.

TL;DR Summary
Fluka installation problem
What path should I follow to install fluka2021.2-linux-gfor64bit-11.2-AA.tar.gz? I'm a Windows 10 user. I installed WSL I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 on wsl.I installed flair and it works. But the fluka does not work and I get an error related to the installation.
:~$ $FLUPRO/flutil/rfluka -h
$TARGET_MACHINE = Linux
$FLUPRO = /home/emil/fluka
Are you sure you downloaded the FLUKA data files?
Apparently the directory /home/emil/fluka/pwxs does not exist

So, one is using a Win10 machine with a Linux virtual environment (Windows Subsystem for Linux) under which one installed Fluka?

I have not done that in the past, but perhaps there is some useful information here

I'm not sure what one means by 'install this docker'. The page goes through steps.

Since one installed FLAIR and it works, you should have similar steps to install FLUKA, but perhaps there are some steps unique to FLUKA.

I will probably do much the same in future.
