    Hi everybody,
    Here's the first Linux build for the 2017.3 series, and with that, we've got a new installation experience.

    Beginning in 2017.3, Linux will use a download assistant like Windows and OSX do, making the installation process more unified across all three platforms.
    Among other things, this means that you can now get standard assets, example project, and documentation installed alongside Unity, instead of having to download them from the Asset Store or rely on online resources.
    It also means that you can install only the components you want, without using extra gigabytes for packages you'll never use.

    So, here's how it works:
    • Get the download assistant from our sleek, ultra-minimalist download page
    • Make it executable, via your file manager or the command line (chmod +x UnitySetup-2017.3.0b1)
    • Run it, via your file manager or the command line (./UnitySetup-2017.3.0b1)
    • Follow the prompts

    The dependencies for the download assistant are:
    • gtk2 (libgtk2.0-0)
    • libsoup (libsoup2.4-1)
    • libarchive (libarchive13) (with support for xar, cpio, tar, gzip, and xz)

    The dependencies for Unity itself have not changed. Unfortunately, the download assistant doesn't verify/preinstall them the same way the deb package would (in conjunction with your distribution's package manager), but it's possible that helper functionality in that direction could be added in the future.

    Anticipated FAQ:
    Q: Can I install more packages later without doing a complete reinstall?
    A: Yes. Just rerun the download assistant, and deselect everything that's already installed or that you still don't want. (You may need to reselect Unity to install packages that depend on it.)

    Q: Do I need a GUI to install Unity now?
    A: No! Run the download assistant with --help to see the available options.
    At minimum, for a command-line installation, you'll want to pass --unattended, --components, and --install-location. (The installation host will, however, still need all of the download assistant's dependencies installed.)

    Q: If I chose to cache the downloaded components locally, can I do another installation without redownloading them?
    A: Yes. Just set your component download directory to the location where you downloaded the components previously, and the download assistant will reuse them, provided that their checksums are correct.

    Here we go! Have fun!

    Build #20171206

    Official Installer:
    2017.3.0f1: http://beta.unity3d.com/download/3c89f8d277f5/public_download.html
    sha1: 864eec744e5ca360c41e6121ddbd4cbb48659fe4

    Graphical Installation Instructions
    • Make the installer writeable by setting the Execute permission of UnitySetup-2017.3.0f1 in your File Manager or via chmod +x
    • Run it, either from your File Manager or via command line
    • Follow the prompts
    Unattended/Command Line Installation Instructions
    • Make the installer writeable: chmod +x UnitySetup-2017.3.0f1
    • Run it: ./UnitySetup-2017.3.0f1 --unattended --install-location=(path)
    If you already have write permissions to the installation location, superuser privileges are not required. If you run the installer with superuser privileges, see "Known Issues" below.

    By default Unity Setup will include a default set of packages. Use the --list-components switch to see which are installed by default and a list of additional components. You can install a custom list of components using the --components switch, which accepts a comma-separated list of components names. Note that --components is case-sensitive.

    Dependencies
    The Unity Linux Editor Beta requires the following dependencies to be installed:
    • gtk2 (libgtk2.0-0)
    • libsoup (libsoup2.4-1)
    • libarchive (libarchive13)
    • libpng (libpng12 or later)
    Known Issues
    • If you ran the installer with superuser privileges, you should
      Code (csharp):
      1. sudo chown -R $USER:$USER Unity-2017.3.0f1
      after installation completes. This will be fixed in a future release.
    • Mono Bleeding Edge has a bug that causes the Editor to become unstable. Please use regular Mono. See this thread for more information.
    Release Notes
    • 2017.3.0f1
    • Added --list-components option to help unattended install users
    • Installer substitutes '~' in install or download location paths
    • Installer recursively creates missing install or download paths
    • Fixed many, many crash bugs
    • Fixed Bug Reporter not appearing on crash
    As noted in the last bullet, the Bug Reporter will now be triggered automatically when the Editor crashes. Your Editor logs should automatically be attached to bugs submitted through this tool. I encourage everyone to also attach their projects if they're not too large, or if they are large, to try and reproduce the crash in a fresh project and send that to us. That will really help us crack down on Editor stability!

    Known Issues
    • If you ran the installer with superuser privileges, you should run
      Code (csharp):
      1. sudo chown -R $USER:$USER Unity-2017.4.4f1
      after installation completes. This will be fixed in a future release.
    • Mono Bleeding Edge (Experimental/.NET 4.6 Equivalent) has a bug that causes the Editor to become unstable. Please use regular Mono. See this thread for more information.
    • The contracted installer option for --unattended (-u) doesn't function. Please use the full --unattended switch instead of -u.
    • You may see warnings in your Editor.log along the lines of:
      Code (csharp):
      1. [0122/155902:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(161)] Running without the SUID sandbox! See https://code.google.com/p/chromium/wiki/LinuxSUIDSandboxDevelopment for more information on developing with the sandbox on.
      This is benign and can be ignored.
    • There was a bug in the installer that would lead to it cleaning up the parent of the selected installation directory in some circumstances. We believe we have resolved the issue, but if it happens to you, your files are not lost - they're in the trash folder for the affected volume.

    • Mono Bleeding Edge (Experimental/.NET 4.6 Equivalent) has a bug that causes the Editor to become unstable. Please use regular Mono. See this thread for more information.
    • The contracted installer option for --unattended (-u) doesn't function. Please use the full --unattended switch instead of -u.
    • You may see warnings in your Editor.log along the lines of:
      Code (csharp):
      1. [0122/155902:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(161)] Running without the SUID sandbox! See https://code.google.com/p/chromium/wiki/LinuxSUIDSandboxDevelopment for more information on developing with the sandbox on.
      This is benign and can be ignored.
    • There was a bug in the installer that would lead to it cleaning up the parent of the selected installation directory in some circumstances. We believe we have resolved the issue, but if it happens to you, your files are not lost - they're in the trash folder for the affected volume.

    The first experimental build of Unity Hub for Linux is here!

    What you'll need:
    • gtk2
    • libnss3/libnspr4
    • 7z (p7zip-full) (See known issues)
    • tar
    • gzip
    • cpio
    • zip

    Known Issues:
    • Not all Unity versions are available for installation under linux
    • Unity versions older than 2018.2.5 and 2017.4.11 may trigger crashes when interacting with Hub
    • Newer versions of 7z (e.g. 16.02 that ships with Ubuntu 17.10+) fail to extract some(most) packages - this will be fixed in an upcoming Hub release
