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"

You cannot really download anything under Linux. You compile the engine from source which includes everything including the templates, examples etc..

As there is no launcher there is not rly an option to do so(And do not even ask about downloading Marketplace content under Linux).

Well they do like Linux, just the priorities are mostly elsewhere. But the more people do use the UE under Linux the better this should get.

The final point is that the editor is usable, on most distros you only need to do the download once per version. There might even be repositories with precompiled packages which might save on the download size.
