Compiling 4.4 in Ubuntu 14.04

I’m having problems with compiling under Ubuntu 14.04. I’m following this guide here:

I’ve installed the prerequisites, updated them, built 3rd party, generated project files, and when I try to compile the SlateViewer (or anything) I get this error:

    lostra@lostra-X550DP:~/Downloads/unreal/unrealengine$ make SlateViewer
    Engine/Build/BatchFiles/Linux/ SlateViewer Linux Development
    Building SlateViewer...

    Target is up to date.

    make: *** [SlateViewer] Error 2

However, I’ve checked and the ScriptGeneratorPlugin is present:

lostra@lostra-X550DP:~/Downloads/unreal/unrealengine/Engine/Plugins/Script$ ls
ScriptEditorPlugin  ScriptGeneratorPlugin  ScriptPlugin
lostra@lostra-X550DP:~/Downloads/unreal/unrealengine/Engine/Plugins/Script/ScriptGeneratorPlugin$ ls
Binaries  Resources  ScriptGeneratorPlugin.uplugin  Source

Any idea to fix this?

4.4 is not buildable natively, although you can cross-compile game and server targets.

The link up there I was following clearly states that it can be built on Linux, there are also Vids online in wich they are using the editor in linux environment.

Yes, but you need to check out our master for that. Also, amigo (3dluvr) has a fixed 4.4-branch if you want to stick to that release.

I’ll check 3dluvr’s git then, and update :slight_smile:
