Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Could you try to use UBT from command line? Here example of Windows, Linux should be similar

 D:\UE4\UnrealEngine\Engine\Build\BatchFiles\Build.bat PluginTest Win32 Debug "SolutionDir/ProjectName.uproject"

Also try install code::blocks as i know UE4 supports that

thing is I dont have windows so I am trying to compile natively from ubuntu. I tried that command and doesnt work. Also in code::blocks I can open the sln file but won't show me the files. Do I possibly need wine to compile or some virtualbox?

What you looking to do is cook your project (as I understand) https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/130258/cooking-on-linux.html

There is a wiki page also -> https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/130258/cooking-on-linux.html

The problem is that this is a moving target. I too have had no success with this process yet. Though I only have a little time apply to this. Please let us know what worked.
