I am running Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS on my computer. Today I thought I’d give Unreal Engine a try and take a break from Blender Game Engine which is not quite as good looking. I waited a long time for the program to install but when I go to run it the program crashes. The splash screen shows up for a few seconds and then closes immediately. I ran this in my terminal and I get this extremely large error:

Just append it to the command you use to start the editor. So you have to call
./UE4Editor -opengl3 instead of
If you are not running from terminal you will have to create or adjust the required links accordingly.
