Ubuntu and other binary distros

On Ubuntu and maybe countless other binary distros, you are going to need some additional packages. For Ubuntu listed below:

sudo apt-get install x11-xserver-utils libgl1-mesa-dev libxrandr-dev libxinerama-dev libxcursor-dev libxi-dev gcc make g++ libxmu-dev libxi-dev libgl-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libvulkan1 mesa-vulkan-drivers vulkan-utils libvulkan-dev libasound2-dev libflac-dev libogg-dev libtool libvorbis-dev libopus-dev libsndfile1-dev libglew-dev libssl-dev


  1. Clone the framework using git: git clone --recursive
  2. Enter the new folder
  3. Run the script. This will install the necessary files for the framework, but will not compile it. If the script failed, check out how to clean up your environment in the troubleshooting section below. Run instructions below:
    • On Windows, git bundles Git Bash which emulates the bash shell found on Linux, so you can run it with ./ or run bash into CMD
    • On Linux, just run it with the terminal by using ./
  4. Answer the prompts
  5. Wait
  6. If there is an error, read through the error log and go to Troubleshooting.

After the install script is finished, you can now create your project. To create a project, use the same script running instructions below and do the following:

  1. Run ./
  2. Enter your application’s name
  3. Wait
  4. If there was an error, read the error log and go to Troubleshooting.


Cleaning up your environment when the installation fails

Builds sometimes fail and while it’s important to report build problems to us here, it’s also important to know how to rebuild once the problem is resolved. The issue is, without proper cleanup, you can’t rerun the ./ script. Below are some things you can do:

  1. Delete the build folders under the UVKBuildTool folder
  2. Delete the Projects folder
  3. Go back to the framework directory
  4. Rerun

Visual Studio: Command Line error /02 and /RTC1 options are incompatible

This is a very common generation error. To fix it, right-click on the UntitledImGuiFramework project in the Solution Explorer then click the Properties button.

Next, navigate to the C/C++ section, expand the list and click on Code Generation. Inside the list view, you should see a setting called Basic Runtime Checks, which you need to set to Default.


Other errors

Don’t see your error here? Please create an issue to the GitHub issue tracker and send us your build log with your system information. This way, we can resolve your problem, and if needed, document it here if needed. Thanks for using the UntitledImGuiFramework :grinning:
