@acxz, thanks I will add this to PKGBUILD. It seems that other users also changed the folder as I did. Unfortunately, I don’t know where to install the binary version.

@Shatur that seemed to do the trick! Thanks so much! Is there a way for that step to be done in the PKGBUILD so it doesn't affect other users?

Also, do you know if any unofficial repos have a binary build of this package? That would be much appreciated since this build takes forever, (took around 7 hours).

@acxz, could you also try this: chmod -R a+rwX /opt/unreal-engine/Engine?

Shatur commented on 2020-01-26 21:45

@acxz, log. Please note that I changed /opt to /mnt/Files/Programs/Linux

Do you think it could be because of yay? I really doubt it tho. Can you show me the console output you get when launching UE4Editor. I would like to see what it should do.

@acxz, it is very strange that this path is used, usually it should create files in /opt.

Since I don't want to go through the download again. I just renamed the folder. However, I am still getting the same error, with the same references to the /home/acxz/.cache/yay/unreal-engine path.

@acxz, you don't need to run as with root previlegies. Try to remove /home/acxz/.cache/yay/unreal-engine/.

Why is the install trying to create a in /opt, shouldn't is be in $pkgbase/opt?

Yes, it's okay.

Trying to run it as sudo results in Refusing to run with root privileges. Do I need to add my user to a certain group?

@acxz, now you have something wrong with permissions.
