I am trying to install glut-3.6 on linux .
I downloaded the package and followed the instructions in linux folder in readme file.But its giving errors and libglut.so.3.6 is not there.Maybe I am quite unclear about the instructions given there.Pls tell me how to do so.Especially I am not clear about which makefile is replaced by which makefile.
try using freeglut, it is a maintained direct replacement of the original glut code.
On Debian/Ubuntu, doing it with package management is very simple, something like :
sudo apt-get install freeglut-dev
What linux distribution do you have ?
Here’s an super simple GLUT prog. Copy this into glut_link.cxx:
main( int argc, char *argv )
glutInit( &argc, argv );
glutInitDisplayMode( GLUT_DOUBLE | GLUT_DEPTH | GLUT_RGB );
glutCreateWindow( "window title" );
glGetIntegerv( GL_MAX_TEXTURE_UNITS, &count );
printf( "MAX_TEXTURE_UNITS = %d
", count );
Now compile and run with:
g++ -o glut_link glut_link.cxx -lglut
And you should see something like this:
MAX_TEXTURE_UNITS = 4
If you don’t, tell us what you do see.
Also, give us the output of:
ls -1 /usr/include/GL/glut.h /usr/lib/libglut* /usr/lib64/libglut*
, and are you on 32-bit or 64-bit Linux (uname -m will tell you; if it’s x86_64, you’re 64-bit)?
