How to use CMake on UE4-Linux?

Arch linux user here.

  • Have download the ue4 source code from github.
  • Runned and
  • cmake cmake_install.cmake

And got a folder named CMakeFiles. So what to do next?


You are supposed to do: make i.e. ‘make UE4Editor’ to build the Editor. Please read the Wiki at: A new, community-hosted Unreal Engine Wiki - Announcements - Unreal Engine Forums

Alternatively, you can directly issue build commands to UBT by ‘Engine/Build/BatchFiles/Linux/ UE4Editor Linux Development’ but that’s a long way about it…
