Description of the issue:

I keep getting this error while trying to test the Lightship simulator:

This would really speed up development but I can’t get it to work. As soon as I hit the play button the sample environment disappears.
I am quite new to this so…

Hello Alex,

Unfortunately at this time, ARDK doesn’t officially support Linux. Other community members are still free to chime in and offer their knowledge if they run ARDK on Linux, but officially we don’t provide support for any Linux distro. I apologize for the inconvenience
