Unity Editor on Linux


I know the Unity Linux Editor is a new beast, but I’d love to use it. With the 5.4 and 5.5 releases I get the same error after assigning an fmod project path:

DllNotFoundException: fmod

Near the top fmod.cs where all the platform defines are to route to different dlls, there is no mention of UNITY_EDITOR_LINUX, so it defaults to “fmod”

I played with making it use libfmod or libfmodstudio, but: DllNotFoundException: libfmod.

Am I missing an easy fix? Are there much bigger issues keeping the linux editor from being usable with fmod right now?


Sorry about the delay, it looks like there was a bit more to it than just that. The fix will be out in our next release at the end of the month.

Thanks for the reply. I saw there has been a release since then. Spent a while trying to get it working. No luck. Is it still in the works? Thanks!

Apologies, there was no release at the end of December, the next is end of January which contains the needed libs and integration for Linux.

Sweet. Thanks!

I see you did it! Thanks! It’s working now!
