So you have to use the GLUT ilbrary ro use OpenGL with Linux?


No, you don’t. Many tutorial programs use GLUT because it’s simple and uncomplicated. It’s nice for basic windowing, but doesn’t really allow you to do much tweaking.
You can find some more information in this thread .

Thanks, very helpful!

You can also use Motif and the OpenGL widget. See the man pages for GLwDrawingArea and the GLX library.
