    Hi,
    I seen some old threads about this, but is Unity team currently targeting any more future LTS Ubuntu releases for Unity Hub and Editor?

    I'm running Pop_OS 20.04 (Ubuntu) and was able to load and run UnityHub (although linux doesn't understand .AppImage file type, FYI) and install 2019.4. I could create a project, but the editor does not run.

    Thanks for any info.

    No word from Unity about officially supporting Ubuntu 20.04 (none that I heard of anyway). I sure hope they will officially support it at some point. It's the new Ubuntu LTS so they have no reasons not to.

    Even without official support, Unity runs pretty well on Ubuntu 20.04. I use it daily. I have yet to try 2019.4 though (only 2019.3 so far).

    As far as I know, Pop OS uses the Gnome desktop environment, just like vanilla Ubuntu. So I don't expect you will get any problem with it. I heard of people having UI bugs with Elementary OS's Pantheon desktop environment, and also with KDE when global menu is enabled. But you should be fine with Gnome.

    What do you mean by "the editor does not run"?

    I create my project. Im new to Unity so I assume when I click my project I'm supposed to see the editor. I don't. And the logs indicate some error.

    I tried the previous release. Same issue. Doesnt run.

    And plenty of errors in the logs. Looks like Unity no work in Ubuntu 20.04

    Hi did you manage to figure out how to get it running? I've just tried to install and getting the same issues, I can load an example project but I get compile errors mainly around missing namespaces

    Works good with Ubuntu 20.04, and I tested with Linux Mint 20 (Cinnamon) with no issues at all. :)

    Cool, which version of the editor did you try and did you also build something Standalone/Android etc?

    I've been running both 2019.4.5f1 and 2020.1.0b16 on Xubuntu 20.04 without significant issues. Created and opened projects in both versions.

    If you read the blog post about Unity for Linux, it is said that, for now, Linux is still not officially supported. It is said that it might be in 2020.
