GtkGLExt vs. GtkGLArea


I’m about to start the developement of an Gtk-based application with the need of OpenGL support.

As far as I google enlightens me, I have two choices for OpenGL support: GtkGLExt and GtkGLArea. Does someone have some experience with these two libraries; pros and cons, and which have best support?

AFAIK, GtkGLArea is deprecated.

Ok, then GtkGLExt is the sane choice. Thanks. :slight_smile:

I’ve used GtkGLExt and I love it.

Super easy to setup, and easy to use as always with OpenGL.
