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"

UE4Editor not launching on Ubuntu 16.04, crashing at startup

I installed UE 4.13 using the documentation available online. All steps went fine. But when i cd'd into Engine/Binaries/Linux/ and tried to run UE4Editor . I got some errors and then it shut down. Can someone help me resolve this issue? Before that step i had no problem. I have ubuntu 16.04 and Nvidia grpahics card, latest graphics drivers from nvidia are installed.

So i had these errors. I am only giving the warning or errors, otherwise a lot was written that i guessed would be useless as it was in white color only. But let me know if more information is needed.
