Hi & Welcome to LQ.

Is this what your looking for?

https://unity3d.com/

-:::-It is still considered experimental for Linux.-:::-

Here in this link there is a sh script for Other 64-bit Distributions, and a .deb pkg that you can download.

https://forum.unity.com/threads/unit...issues.350256/

If MX Linux is based on Debian or Ubuntu than you would download the .deb pkg and install it with the dpkg -i command.

If not you would download the unity-editor-installer-5.1.0f3+2015091501.sh and run it as root and the installer should walk you through it.

Is your pc a laptop or a desktop?

What onboard GPU does your Lenovo Ideapad already have?

Taking a laptop apart is a tad tricky. You would have to put it back together in the reverse order that you dissembled it:-

that'S a 100 dollar trash can notebook, similar to the specs of a chromebook. everything soldered on board with low spec intel cpu and gpu.

i would be careful to expect much with intel gpus. they can run basic text mode that'S it. and they are very laggy.

It has a reason why notebooks are sold with proper nvidia or amd graphics. even an amd apu is more powerful and suitable for that task.

also 2GiB soldered RAM. Thats far too low in the long run for anything.

You can use it as a typewriter, and when you have a few tabs open with a not resource eating webbrowser, thats it.

You may be able to use it with your expected task. but expect delays and a lot of patience on your side.
some guys do not see lags at all. some guys do not mind waiting for basic software to startup and get ready.

@ OP -- hardware limitations are a real concern
@ _roman_ -- a little harsh -- maybe it was a gift.

In any case, MX wasn't a bad choice for this machine, AntiX would be better. Or Puppy.

Do your best with what you got! Best wishes

Let's avoid perjorative value judgments, please.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain! That machine has similar specs to the one I am now typing on, which is perfect for all my uses. As with most things in life, you will get out of it what you put into it!

I do not run unity so cannot vouch for graphics performance, but install, configure, solve problems as they arise and decide for yourself whether it works for you!

Agreed:-

Anti-X or Puppy should work nicely.

Happy New Year.
