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"

After running 'make' Makefile:212: Error 1 - Unable to Install UE4

Just followed Linux Quick Start install guide on my Pop!_os 19.04 machine (Which as far to my concerns sits on top of Ubuntu 19.04)

On step 3; When running make from terminal to build the project binaries i get the following error

Parsing headers for CrashReportClient:

' ' 'Running UnrealHeaderTool CrashReportClient "/home/gemex/UnrealEngine/UnrealEngine/Engine/Intermediate/Build/Linux/B4D820EA/CrashReportClient/Shipping/CrashReportClient.uhtmanifest" -LogCmds="loginit warning, logexit warning, logdatabase error" -Unattended -WarningsAsErrors Refusing to run with the root privileges.

make: [Makefile:212: CrashReportClient-Linux-Shipping] Error 1

Steps to solve this issue would be very usefull as i'm a newbie on UE4. And half a newbie on Linux.

Product Version: UE 4.22

I came across an apparent fix in this issue.

Hypotheses is that the UnrealEngine directory was owned by root so make failed because of permissions, and sudo make refused to succeed on the task.


sudo chown -R $USER

then run make.

**Now the question is ¿How do i change who owns UnrealEngine directory on linux?
