    Seeing as I'm going back to uni tomorrow, and my laptop runs linux, I'd also be very interested in hearing an answer to the above...

    Good news for Linux in version 4.9.1? Any improvement? Problem fixed? New additions?

    I, too, am interested in the answer to this. Would love some way of getting at the Marketplace without switching to a different OS.

    Hey everyone,

    Has anyone managed to build for the raspberry Pi and Linux?

    I am looking for a push in the right direction.

    Thanks,

    I think that in ubuntu it works very horrible, is so slow, and not all interfaces work fine, the Editor crash ever that begin a simple process, update project code for example, and so, it's very horrible work in ubuntu.

    But, only Unrea work very bad in ubuntu, MODO works fine, Blender works fine, all python process works fine, it's very good for heavy work, better than windows, then, i don't understand why Unreal Engine work so bad in Ubuntu.
    Not sure what you are talking about but Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS is the distro you should use if you want seriously develop UE4 stuff and you don't want to have to trouble with compiling and other issues. Personally I use Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS with 16GB and NVidia 750ti and UE4 rocks. I have super high framerates, developing stuff without big issues.
    Use the latest Unreal Engine 4 (4.9 atm).

    All I know is the GitHub page :https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine/tree/4.8 from this page: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Linux_Support
    If there's another official repo, I don't know about it.

    EDIT: Doh, I just found it. Had to click on the UnrealEngine link up top for the new one. You need to link the "use it" link to the new version.

    EDIT 2: I went back to Windows 10, its a decent OS and I got tired of waiting for a decent native 3D game engine editor to get to Linux.

    The Editor hasn't seen an update for a month, what is the status of the project? I would like to get off Windows again, but both your editor and the new Unity Linux editor are both too buggy to use to develop with.
