Does the LunarG SDK have installable packages for Ubuntu LTS releases?

Yes, LunarG provides installable packages for Ubuntu LTS releases. LunarG provides both a “Linux Tarball” SDK and native Linux packages for the Ubuntu Linux distribution. The SDK installer for the Linux “tarball” is self-extracting and does not install files to system locations that require administrator privileges. The installer will create a local SDK directory of the form VulkanSDK/<version> in the current working directory. See the Getting Started guide for Linux found on LunarXchange ( for more details. The native Linux packages for Ubuntu install the binaries in the system locations. For more information on the two types of Linux SDKs, visit the SDK page on LunarXchange.
