Error: Unity is not supported in Linux guests

What's Causing This Error

The error "Unity is not supported in Linux guests" typically arises when you're using a virtualization software like VMware and attempting to use the Unity mode with a Linux guest operating system. Unity mode in VMware is designed to integrate applications from the guest operating system (like Linux) directly into the host operating system's desktop. However, this feature is only fully supported for Windows guests.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

Given that the issue seems to be with VMware's Unity mode:

  1. Try using a different integration feature or software. If you need to run Linux applications seamlessly on your host OS, consider alternatives like VirtualBox's Seamless Mode or software like Cygwin and WSL2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux) for Windows hosts.

If the error is related to the Unity game engine:

  1. Check the Unity version. Make sure you are using a version of Unity that supports Linux. You can check the official Unity website or forums for more information on supported platforms for different versions.

  2. Update your drivers and libraries. Ensure that your graphics drivers and other libraries are up-to-date. Missing or outdated drivers could cause compatibility issues between Unity and Linux.

  3. Seek help from the Unity community. Unity has an active community of developers who may have encountered similar problems. Check for solutions on forums like the Unity Community, Stack Overflow, and Unity Answers.
