To start Unity Editor on Linux, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Download Unity Hub from the Unity website (https://unity.com/). The Unity Hub is a unified launcher that manages all your Unity projects and installations.
  2. Once the download is complete, open Terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T.
  3. Change the directory to the location where you downloaded the Unity Hub installer. For example, if you downloaded it in your "Downloads" folder, use the following command: cd ~/Downloads
  4. Make the installer executable by running the following command: chmod +x UnityHub.AppImage
  5. Run the Unity Hub installer by executing the following command: ./UnityHub.AppImage
  6. The Unity Hub will open, and you need to log in with your Unity ID credentials to access the Unity Editor. If you haven't created a Unity ID, you can create one for free on the Unity website.
  7. After logging in, you can download and install the desired version of Unity Editor from the Unity Hub. Once the installation is complete, you can start the Unity Editor by clicking on the "Projects" tab, selecting the desired project, and clicking on the "Open" button.


Note: Unity Editor requires hardware and software specifications to run smoothly. Make sure your Linux system meets the required specifications mentioned on the Unity website.


That's it! You have successfully started the Unity Editor on Linux.
