There are a couple users on here who confirmed ENIGMA can compile games successfully on various Linux distrobutions, all of which weren't an Ubuntu distro. Does anyone know a version of Ubuntu specifically that works with ENIGMA? I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and as I stated before ENIGMA doesn't work on it, whether a blank project or any non-blank project I try to throw at LGM, the IDE instantly crashes every time I hit run, debug, or build. One of my projects that crashed LGM on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS compiled just fine for other users on Linux Mint and like one other distro I can't remember the name of. Does anyone know of an Ubuntu version that works with ENIGMA?

Thanks.

Ubuntu 14 is the official recommendation of YYG with the Ubuntu module. You can try that or Lubuntu.  i tested Lububtu 16 on a desktop computer and it worked. However the machines I uses are solely for that OS, I test. I don't dual boot or use VM images, so I can't help you in this regard.

Sometimes the variants of Ubuntu are much better that the actual official distributions. In all my testings of the various Linux OSes, none have worked better than MX Linux and Tresquel Linux. Regarding MX Linux, most of ENIGMA's dependencies were already present. I only had to upgrade Java to version 8. It remains stable without any crashes......well except for setting up external editors. But even that I was finally able to do.

My graphic editor loads just fine now so i can edit sprites and backgrounds in the IDE. I will do a video soon to show the process i did.

For the last couple of days I've been testing some Linux distros to see if ENIGMA will work on them. Mind you all of these are 64bit versions. The distros I've tried are

Manjaro KDE 17
Ferrin OS
OpenMandrivia 2017
OpenSuse Leap 64bit
Maui Linux
ReactOS

Sad to say none of them worked. Two did not boot up and the ones that did could not find all the dependencies needed which resulted in all types of errors when I ran the compiler. One error said there was no package for the compiler needed. So very strange.

The reason I did this was to ascertain whether the various errors other people got when using ENIGMA, was either due to the Linux Distro or rather the type version (64bit vs 32bit) used. Most Linux versions I use are 32bit.

I've finished testing 3 more 64bit Linux Distros which ended with two failures and one success. The one that succeeded was Debian 8 32bit version with the KDE desktop. The two that failed were Antergos and PeppermintOS 64 bit.

I had used 32bit versions of Manjaro KDE, Maui Linux, PepperMint OS and OpenMandrivia before with some success when installing to my desktop system. Other Os that worked for me was also Mx Linux and Tresquel 8 Linux. Ubuntu 16 also worked but soon after I upgraded to Ubuntu 17, i got errors as well as the applications lagged.

The Desktop system used was a Dell Inspiron 5300 with a 1.8GHZ Dual Core x86_64 Cpu; 4Gb of DDr2 SD RAM; 150GB SATA Hard drive and a DVDRW SATA Drive. I had originally installed Windows 10 Pro but I have just had enough of Windows shortcomings. The version is a VL version as it is the only one that will work in my region but it started to slow down and I couldn't set the display settings to my preference. It was such an annoyance to setup it up to begin with........so I finally got rid of it and now Debian Linux 8 will be the only OS.

I tried installing Xubuntu 16.04 today via the usual (wubi) and the installer threw an error before completion forcing the installation to not successfully complete. It only seems to throw the error when I select Xubuntu though, if I do the default (Ubuntu) it completes as it should. Since Xubuntu isn't working for me, I still haven't tried hpg678's original suggestions, so I'll try those hopefully within the next week or so. Installing these takes a really long time and it's very draining, I need a break.

Unfortunately Lubuntu 16 gave me the same error. I'm trying Ubuntu 14.04 LTS as we speak.
