Linux Development Environment

To start working with the Unigine engine on the Linux platform you should install the UNIGINE SDK and additional software.

Prepare the Environment for Linux#

Install UNIGINE SDK#

Notice
You may also need to set the following environment variables:
  • Add to $LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable locations of the following directories: <UnigineSDK>/lib.
Re-login to make the changes in ~/.profile take effect.

Make sure that your terminal takes environment variables into account.
From the Terminal main menu, choose Edit > Profile Preferences > Title and Command and check Run command as a login shell box.

Additional Software#

  • Linux 2.6.x
  • GCC 4.x.x
  • Python 2.7
  • SCons 2.5.1+
  • distcc (optional)
  • ccache (optional)

To install all required Debian/Ubuntu packages, use the following:

Shell commands
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6 gcc g++ make scons ccache libgl1-mesa-dev libxrandr-dev:i386 libxinerama-dev libopenal1 libxrender-dev libxext-dev libc6-dev libx11-dev
After that, perform the following to avoid errors during the engine recompilation:
Shell commands
username@pc-name:~$ cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
username@pc-name:~/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu$ sudo ln -s libXrandr.so.2 libXrandr.so

For 64 -bit Debian/Ubuntu, install additional packages to enable 32 -bit cross-compilation:

Shell commands
sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib lib32gcc1 lib32z1 lib32z1-dev lib32stdc++6 libc6-i386 g++-multilib
