How is to create a C++ project?


I have Rider 2022.2 on Arch Linux. From what I understand from IDE description, it should support C++ language, and I see C++ plugin in my installation, enabled by default. But I can't find a correct template in "Create new solution" menu. For example, in "console application" one I can only choose from C#, F# and VB. Am I missing something?

My installation has a separate C++ section inside new solution:

Maybe it differs from version to version (I'm on Rider 2022.2)

I have no such section... Looks like something is wrong with my installation then

Hello Griglogvin,

Thank you for contacting Rider support.
On MacOs and Linux, the only way to develop on C++ is to work with Unreal Engine projects. You can open .uproject and work on Unreal Engine project/engine, but there is no way to develop non-UE projects.
