Cross compiling FOR Linux ON Windows

Hello do you need to use the git hub version of UE4 To cross compile as i have followed the instructions as close as i can and i used the generate project files when i right clicked on my .uproject file
and i still cannot compile for linux

i set up the tool chain both manually and using powershell

EDIT I Have finally got the toolchain installed now i get the error

“Sorry, packaging a code-based project for the selected platform is currently not supported. This feature may be available in a future release.”

I believe for code based projects and if you have the toolchain installed correctly, you will have to build the project from Visual Studio. Only BP projects will build to Linux from the editor.

Hello, yes thats right, i eventually got it working by using the soruce version.
Thank you though
