# Cannot install packages on WSL

I am using Windows 10 have tried to use sage via WSL. I can open sage via Ubuntu. However, I cannot install gap_packages as "sage -i" is not in the commands available. Can anyone tell me how to get sage -i to work, or is there any other way to install this package.

SageMath version 9.0, Release Date: 2020-01-01

Optional arguments:
file.[sage|py|spyx] -- run given .sage, .py or .spyx file

selected options:
--long - include lines with the phrase 'long time'

--sagenb - test all sagenb files

-v, -version -- display Sage version information

Did you compile Sage from source or did you install a precompiled package from your chosen WSL distribution ? (Which one, by the way ?)

What I did was I enabled WSL and installed Ubuntu, then via Ubuntu I installed Sage by one of the installation commands. I think it was "apt-get install sagemath"?

Ok I sort of solved it. I installed the package I wanted by: sudo apt-get install gap_sonata, and it works perfectly.
