Unable to do cross-compiling for linux


Followed link Linux Development Requirements for Unreal Engine | Unreal Engine 5.2 Documentation to do cross-compiling for linux to get linux standalone app running for first time. As per steps under “Setting up the linux build configuration” couldn’t follow that steps completely as I couldn’t find Setup.bat and GenerateProjectFiles.bat in engine installed folders, not sure if this is the problem.
Hence couldn’t find option to target Linux platform in visual studio, any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

Hey frontier_cm-

Setup.bat and GenerateProjectFiles.bat are files associated with the source version of the engine from www.GitHub.com . If you are going to be cross-compiling, you will need to download and build the engine first. Steps to do so can be found here: GitHub - EpicGames/Signup: Information about signing up for a free Epic Games account, and getting access to UnrealEngine source code.
