I need to make an extension for Orca support for my game. Does anyone know about making external extensions for linux?

Also, does anyone have any history of porting their windows game to linux and any issues that may arise? Thanks.

There's an official extension example. You can also take a look at my extension for Steam API as an example of referencing external "shared objects".

Linux generally isn't too much trouble - I think the main thing on the recent projects was that, unless there's a 1-frame delay before switching between windowed and full screen modes on game start, the game would not adapt to updated window region (be larger than window or not fill the entire screen). Other than that, users with unusual setups (distro/library versions) can have different hard-to-replicate issues with display/audio (absence of, if wrong openal version is present)/controls (mouse detecting as gamepad 0), but that is not usually something you can do anything about on the game side.
