Hello Ixllegacy123

Could you specify how Rider was installed on your system (using the Toolbox app/snap/tarball)?

i solved this problem by

1. restart PC

2. start Rider

3. it will suggest you to install a plugin called "Structured Logging"


after installing that ( and installing rider plugin in engine ofc ) you can launch the Unreal Engine through rider and then you got no problems anymore

Thanks for the update. It sounds like there was an issue with environment variables - variables were picked up after the system (and Toolbox App/Rider) restart. "Structured Logging" plugin does not affect Unreal Engine in any way.

I'm also facing this issue on Ubuntu 22.04
