unfortunately we have limited experience of running the plugin on Linux, but the plugin code is quite “normal” and it relies on the ordinary APIs provided by UE4, so it should compile without major issues. BTW the plugin compiles and run on many platforms, included Android that runs a Linux kernel.
The reported problem seems an issue of UBT, before starting the compiling phase.
The “workaround” you mentioned is wrong: setting the plugin
