Fresh Ubuntu 18.04 installation, IL2CPP issue, missing libraries?

    Hi all,
    I just installed fresh Ubuntu 18.04 to have the best possible support for Unity on Linux.
    I almost got everything right for mobile development apart from IL2CPP on Android.

    I installed Unity 2019.2.17 with option to install Unity provided libraries for JAVA/NDK/SDK, with some workaround mentioned here(https://issuetracker.unity3d.com/is...se-andriod-ndk-and-sdk-tool-installed-via-hub).
    In the end, Unity detects SDK, JDK and NDK just fine and can build apk package with Mono no problem.
    For NDK I used the one Unity downloaded package but had to fix the invalid directory it was downloaded to.
    I use .Net 4.x, tried to build AMRv7 and ARM64, and with NDK the issue is the same.

    Whenever I try to build Android package using IL2CPP I get:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. Failed running /home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/il2cpp/build/il2cpp.exe --convert-to-cpp --emit-null-checks --enable-array-bounds-check --dotnetprofile="unityaot" --compile-cpp --libil2cpp-static --platform="Android" --architecture="ARMv7" --configuration="Release" --outputpath="/home/marcin/Workspace/games/test 2019.2.17/Temp/StagingArea/assets/bin/Data/Native/armeabi-v7a/libil2cpp.so" --cachedirectory="/home/marcin/Workspace/games/test 2019.2.17/Assets/../Library/il2cpp_android_armeabi-v7a/il2cpp_cache" --additional-include-directories="/home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/PlaybackEngines/AndroidPlayer/Tools/bdwgc/include" --additional-include-directories="/home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/PlaybackEngines/AndroidPlayer/Tools/libil2cpp/include" --tool-chain-path="/home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/PlaybackEngines/AndroidPlayer/NDK" --profiler-report --map-file-parser="/home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/Tools/MapFileParser/MapFileParser" --directory="/home/marcin/Workspace/games/test 2019.2.17/Temp/StagingArea/assets/bin/Data/Managed" --generatedcppdir="/home/marcin/Workspace/games/test 2019.2.17/Temp/StagingArea/Il2Cpp/il2cppOutput"
    When I try to run the command in terminal manually I get some more readable error output:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. /home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/il2cpp/build/il2cpp.exe --convert-to-cpp --emit-null-checks --enable-array-bounds-check --dotnetprofile="unityaot" --compile-cpp --libil2cpp-static --platform="Android" --architecture="ARMv7" --configuration="Release" --outputpath="/home/marcin/Workspace/games/test 2019.2.17/Temp/StagingArea/assets/bin/Data/Native/armeabi-v7a/libil2cpp.so" --cachedirectory="/home/marcin/Workspace/games/test 2019.2.17/Assets/../Library/il2cpp_android_armeabi-v7a/il2cpp_cache" --additional-include-directories="/home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/PlaybackEngines/AndroidPlayer/Tools/bdwgc/include" --additional-include-directories="/home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/PlaybackEngines/AndroidPlayer/Tools/libil2cpp/include" --tool-chain-path="/home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/PlaybackEngines/AndroidPlayer/NDK" --profiler-report --map-file-parser="/home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/Tools/MapFileParser/MapFileParser" --directory="/home/marcin/Workspace/games/test"

    3. bash: /home/marcin/Unity/Hub/Editor/2019.2.17f1/Editor/Data/il2cpp/build/il2cpp.exe: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
    4.  
    From what I read "Exec format error" is related to issue with cpu type invalid versions (arm/32 bit/64 bit etc).
    I am not sure what is wrong here but I assume that I miss some libraries which would allow me to build Android IL2CPP using NDK.
    What I have installed is build-essentials plus some libraries like
    libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386
    libgtk2.0-0 libsoup2.4-1 libarchive13 libpng16-16 libgconf-2-4 lib32stdc++6 libcanberra-gtk-module
    This is the list I found somewhere on the internet. Unfortunately it didn't help.
    Any clues?

    Can you paste the contents of the editor log?

    Thank you for fast feedback, didn't expect it :)

    @andrews_unity
    I didn't install any mono related packages until now.
    I just installed mono-runtime, but unfortunately it didn't help.
    Probably this is not the right thing to install but I am not sure which mono related thing can fix it.
    If you know where I can find list of packages which are required I am more than happy to follow that.

    @Tautvydas-Zilys
    I am attaching Editor.log right after I installed mono-runtime and built sample scene(got expected error).

    Again, thank you for answers.

    [Update]
    I later also installed mono-devel(thank you Rider) but it didn't change anything.

    So it looks like IL2CPP failed to run clang from the NDK installation directory:

    Is the file there? If it is, does it have the executable bit set?

    Thanks @Tautvydas-Zilys for help

    bin clang directory binaries didn't have execute permission, fixed(should it be reported separately?).
    Unfortunately now there is another issue, I guess important part(new Editor.log attached)

    4. clang++: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
    Update
    I tried to build AMRv7(log above and Editor.log).
    When I try to build AMR64 this part is a little different, what I get:

    Code (CSharp):

    That falls beyond my knowledge, unfortunately... I'll ask somebody who knows about android toolchains to respond.

    @Tautvydas-Zilys no worries, I am really grateful for the time you invested already.
    Will try maybe to download NDK separately and use that one instead of NDK provided by Unity.

    I switched to freshly downloaded android-ndk-r16b and ... no more issues.
    I don't know what is changed in the Unity version of the NDK, is it just more permissions issues?
    For now will stick with the tools not provided by Unity.

    I am on 2019.3 and Ubuntu 19.10, and have spent hours trying to build on Android with no luck, why is it so complicated?

    Currently, I am stuck with the built in tools complaining about "/usr/bin/ld.bfd: unrecognised emulation mode: aarch64linux"

    Trying external tools, I cannot even get the SDK/NDK to detect properly or yet alone even running

    (Edit: oh yeah, also the editor becomes unable to close after a build failure, which makes me resort to find it and manually killing from a terminal)
