VirtualVEX 2013 For Linux (Prerelease)

For any Linux users out there, VirtualVEX 2013 Alpha 2 is now available for Linux! This build makes use of the new “Build for Linux” feature in Unity 4. VirtualVEX for Linux has been tested on my Fedora 17 machine at home, and the Unity documentation states that it should also work in Ubuntu. Other distributions have not been tested, but it should run fine on most of them. You can find the new release on our downloads page:

Please note that you must give the program execution permissions before you can run it. Do do so, open a Terminal window, cd to the VirtualVEX install directory, and run chmod +x virtualvex. You will then be able to run the program.

Also note that, this being Linux, the program files are packaged as a tar archive. There is no automated installer. You may extract the files to any directory of your choice.

If anyone is not running Fedora or Ubuntu, it would be great if you could test this on whatever distro you are using.

Stay tuned for the next round of updates!
