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"

Unreal 4.17 crashes on startup on Linux

I cloned latest code from 4.17 branch, compiled and ran my project few times (each time without any changes). About 1 out of 4 times it crashed on startup, I think whenever I tried to push its window in background. Below is the call stack from Crashes folder which seem to come entirely from Unreal code. Also here's whole crash folder

Thanks for reporting. A few more details would be helpful in order to understand the issue.

  • What is your desktop environment?

  • Was the splash screen visible? If yes, was the mouse cursor inside it?

  • What exactly do you mean by "pushing the window into background"? Were you minimizing it or clicking on some other window to bring it into the focus?
