Can't add existing project with Unity Hub 2.0.0 if there aren't currently any projects

    Unity Hub 2.0.0, Ubuntu 18.04 Linux.

    I have an existing project using Unity 2019.1.4f1. When I click "ADD", then click on the folder, then click "OK", nothing happens.

    However, if I click "New" and create a new project, then I close out of that, re-open Unity Hub, and now the "ADD" button works and I can open my project.

    It seems that I can only add existing projects using the Unity Hub if I already have projects in the Unity Hub. When Unity Hub is fresh installed and has no projects in it, I can't add any.

    Thanks for workaround,the bug is still present in v2.1.2. Strange thing is if you select wrong folder you get error message, something like "invalid Unity project folder" but if you select the right one, absolutely nothing happens.

    My Hub 2.2.2 can not even create a empty project to add after, as suggested. I'm using Linux Mint 19.1 (targets Ubuntu 18.09).

    Currently using UnityHub 2.2.2 on Fedora Linux 31.

    The Unity hub won't open existing projects, (imported from Github), or create new projects. When attempting to open an existing project, nothing happens. No messages, no pop-ups, etc. When attempting to create a new project, it appears to work, but the hub closes without opening the editor. When restarting the hub, the project exists in the hub, but no files or folders were created.

    Additional Notes:
    • Signed in or signed out makes no difference.
    • After attempting to create an additional project, while no files are created, the project exists within the project list. Attempting to open the project yields a message saying the project could not be found. Attempting to delete the project performs no action. Closing and reopening the hub makes no change.
    • Sudo makes no difference.
    • After a short while, the ghost projects delete themselves from the list. Probable cache being cleared or refreshed?
    • ~/.config/UnityHub/logs/info-log.json > https://pastebin.com/8RZ9qdVY
    • Attempting to launch the editor directly, skipping the Unity Hub, prints the error
      Code (CSharp):
      1. error while loading shared libraries: libGLU.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
      to console.

    Update:
    After installing libGLU directly, via
    Code (CSharp):
    1. sudo dnf install libGLU
    I was able to actually open the project with
    Code (CSharp):
    1. ./Unity ~/my/project/location/my-project
    from with the Unity Editor location. This action opens up the Unity Hub in the background (this can be safely closed) and displays some file opening dialog errors to console, however, the project does successfully open.

    It is also worth noting that even after installing the missing library, Unity Hub still does not appear to allow me to add a project to the empty project list. However, after opening the project with the editor once, it does appear in the project list and can be opened normally. Creating a new project now works, although sometimes prints random error messages.

    This bug is still present in Unity Hub 2.3.0, It appears to happen on every version after 2.0.0 and only affect Linux Targets.

    Should a bug report be filed?

    This is still present for me in Unity Hub version 2.3.1 on Ubuntu 19.10 64-bit (Linux Kernel 5.3.0-51-generic x86_64).

    The workaround of adding an empty project worked

    I cant even install android or ios build tools because the already installed Unity 2020 cant be selected in the hub. I think Unity just release anything now-a-days without testing anything. The most basic stuff dont work

    Install the Unity hub and Unity version outside the c folder:
    install in Documents, downloads or images, for me it worked, it has to be outside the local Disk C:

    This seems to be still an issue in Unity Hub 2.4.0 on Manjaro 20.1. I feel like a Lemming (the game character, not the animal) who followed everyone else off the same cliff.

    Workaround was the solution

    Same thing - Win-7 / Unity Hub 2.4.2 - workaround did not help - created project disappears. Create a new project and fill it's directory with existent helps, but after windows restart projects tab empty again.
    I can't move forward with my project, because IAP requires authorization and hense hub.

    Please help !

    This worked for me: Delete both of the folders ~/.config/unity3d and ~/.config/UnityHub.

    Prior to this could not add existing project or create one. Mentioned workaround didn't work.
    I'm on Garuda Linux (based on Arch), hopefully this works for others.

    This finally happened to me today. latest HUB can't add existing projects (for me). Not clear how to roll back. Reinstall didn't help. Ironically...what works is just not having the hub. Here's what you do if it happens to you. 1 uninstall the hub. 2, browse to the version of the unity editor you wanted to open the project with and run it. When you run unity without the hub installed, the first thing it does is asks you what project to open.

    Still facing that indeed (Linux Ubuntu 20.04 LTS).
    It'd be nice to get that sorted eventually...

    The tip to add a new project first did the trick, many thanks!

    The issue still occurs for me on Ubuntu 18.04 with Unity Hub v2.4.5.
    It would be great if this was fixed -- this is pretty important.
