I’m sorry if this isn’t the correct thread. I didn’t think there was a more appropriate spot:
I’ve moved to a Manjaro Linux workstation about three weeks ago, and am having a difficult time getting Substance to work on Unreal Engine (4.23)
Originally, I tried copy/pasting the Unreal Marketplace downloaded version of the Substance plugin (Windows), but I came up with an incompatibility error and Unreal Editor would not launch.
I later learned about the plugin downloads from source posted in the Substance forum at this URL: Substance Plugin 220.127.116.11 Released
While I can get the plugin to show up in Unreal Editor’s Plugins listings, Enabling the plugin causes the editor to encounter the same issues, but with the added effect of the Uproject file is no longer opening at all. (I’m not worried about that, as I’m experimenting on a duplicate of my actual project file.)
This is what I see in the source-built Unreal Editor 4.23’s Plugins menu.
When I enable the plugin and do the mandatory editor restart, this message pops up:
This is shown in bash:
Upon clicking “Yes” to rebuild, this occurs in bash (Beginning at “Running Mono…”):
My Uproject file “AS_Substance” fails to open.
Selecting not to rebuild skips straight to the error where the Uproject will not open anymore.
As there is no working UE4 launcher for Linux that can access the Marketplace, I cannot download it from the Marketplace. I seem to have this issue when I use the plugin from source posted on the forementioned forum. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction please?
Thank you for your time!
