LunarG now delivers native Ubuntu Linux packages for all the elements in the Vulkan SDK in addition to the Linux SDK tarball. Follow the Ubuntu Packages link on the LunarXchange SDK web page to gain access to the native Ubuntu Linux packages. These packages will install pre-built SDK binaries on a system running Ubuntu Linux and contain all the LunarG Vulkan SDK components at the latest available version. For Ubuntu Linux users, this is the most convenient way to get the Linux SDK content since you will not need to build any binaries yourself. Headers, libraries, and tools are included and prebuilt.
