Install Unity3D in Ubuntu

I wanted to test on my laptop this nice project created with Unity3D by tawnkramer:

Unity3D is used to simulate a self-driving car. A neural network based on the Nvidia’s paper “End to End Learning for Self-Driving Cars” is trained to drive the car down a randomly generated road. You can find the source code here.

Download Unity for Linux

Donwload the last version here. I downloaded the debian package: Unity 5.6.0xb3Linux.


You can install the .deb package via the Ubuntu Software Center and is expected to work on installations of Ubuntu 12.04 or newer.

Fix black screen launching the application

Initially Unity3D was not able to start properly, I was only getting a grey screen. This solution, posted by malyzeli, solved the problem.
