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"

Linux UE4 and Codelite

Hi, I have looked at various posts and pretty much done all I think is necessary 1. Got 4.12 UE4 built from scratch 2. Installed codelite on my xubuntu 15.04 3. In LinuxEngine.ini I set PreferredAccessor=CodeLiteSourceCodeAccessor 4. In UE4 editor settings too I set the source code as codelite 5. Associated .workspace files to Codelite

Still every time I create a C++ project, it ends up opening the .workspace file in mousepad (default text editor for xubuntu) and the terminal shuts down.

I noticed something weird in my terminal, could this be the problem

This is a xdg-open issue. Unfortunately some distros are messing around with the location of the default files for the associations. UE4 is using xdg-open to open files with their associated programs. Check the net for issues regarding that issue. Xfce is causing some issues in terms of that.

After you create c++ project the terminal will close. This is a normal behavior. After creating a c++ project CodeLite should open and the terminal will close.

Furthermore, I recommend everyone wants to seriously develop game using UE4 on gnux use LTS version of Ubuntu (If you use Ubuntu or one of its favours). Don't mess around with short lived distros. It will cause you pain for nothing.

Thank you Yaakuro So xfce file association is causing the issue, so I will figure out how to do that.

One question - if it is normal for the terminal to close and codelite to open, then we have to manually open the editor again? Just wanted to confirm...

Thanks for your help. Ananth

Yes you have to open the ue4 editor by hand again. The CodeLite support is made so that you can start programming and run your ue4 game without starting the editor. Of course you need the editor to add assets and edit your lecel etc. Guess I don't have to tell you that. Check the video tutorials I made that shows how to do so. When I have time again I might add some more tuts.
