    They can't recommend one when Linux Editor is not officially released yet, and it wouldn't be in the spirit of Linux (you make your own choices).

    Both KDevelop and Qt Creator are supported through plugins - please check the Wiki for details on adding them in.

    Hi, could you please and specify what IDE is recommended by Epic to use whilst developing with UE4 on Linux?

    Thank you.

    Hey morph208-

    It will be easier for us to track and investigate your issue with the editor loading slow if you create a post on the AnswerHub where we can assign the issue to a member of the support team. Be sure to let us know here once you have created the post. Additionally, prior to creating the AnswerHub post, install hardinfo and include the info from that to help us see if your issue could be hardware related.

    Cheers

    Doug

    Hello everyone, my name is Viktor and I want to thank you for this thread and for WIKI https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Building_On_Linux .
    I succesfully build Unreal Engine 4.7.4 on Kubuntu 14.10 without any problems (only had to run ./Setup.sh twice) and almost (there is no starter content) everything is working as expected. I have small redraw issues but I can live with it.
    Person who wrote WIKI should get raise and free Tacos for rest of his/her life, everything is described very clearly and it works.
    So again, thank you

    I'm running on Linux Mint Maya (not so distinct from Ubuntu I think).
    There were some missing dependencies, but the script asked for my password to install them, so I quit and installed them manually (from the list in the wiki).
    After that the script didn't ask again so I guess I have them all now.

    Thanks! Didn't know Linux stuff would be deployed on Windows

    We develop and test on Ubuntu only (using unity and KDE). That said, we are taking patches that make the engine work (including install, etc) better on other distros.

    Is there cmake or something of that nature to make process simple?

    What's not working currently in Linux builds compare to Windows builds?

    Thanks.
