Is there a way to install Unity3D 2019 in Ubuntu 19.10? With or without using WINE? I know I can install 2018 but I wanted the latest version (system requirements).

  • Wine isn't a very good solution to run Windows .exe files. You might try Virtualbox with a Windows guest OS, and then install the Unity3D editor there. There may not be enough resources there to run it efficiently (without a little tweaking).

  • Are you using Wine and Unity3D 2018 now? Can't you install 2019 the same way?

Unity doesn't support 19.10 only 18.04 at the moment. But to get it working 19.10 you need to download UnityHub, but there is also flatpak as well (which seems to be fine).

  1. Install libgtk package using

    sudo apt install libgtk2.0-0:i386

    If you don't have it, it won't open for some reason. But if you open from terminal, it will give you some errors which lead me to this link : error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: No such file or directory

  2. You'll probably get some blank error messages in the console.

    Add this line

    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security main

    at the end of /etc/apt/sources.list file (source). Then

    sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y && sudo apt install libssl1.0

    I think you need install it, I can't actually remember, maybe just update/upgrade is enough

  3. You will probably get some burst compiler errors, so just install

    sudo apt install libncurses5

    and you are off to the races, as said from this link

There are also other issues with Unity in Linux but so far, these are main ones to get you up and running.

Also visit the Linux Editor forum, there are lot of people there reporting/solving issues. But also most importantly, report issues official to Unity. Its the only way to Linux editor will get better.

  • I just installed Unity on Ubuntu 19.10 a day ago and didn't need to do any of this. Unity is improving their Linux support ten fold. Woo!
