View Full Version : glut newbie

September 21st, 2005, 01:02 AM

First of all, a big thank-you to the Ubuntu team! Have been using it since Hoary, and I must say, I'm never going back to Windows!

On to the problem:
I am just starting an OpenGL course where we use GLUT. We were given a sample program to basically copy/paste and compile. I can get it to compile by changing the first two lines as follows:

// #include <glut.h>
#include <GL/freeglut.h>

BUT, although it compiles (using Anjuta), it won't build! Every reference to any GLUT command gives me a similar error:

undefined reference to `glClearColor'
.... etc etc for all gl references

I'm using Breezy Preview, Anjuta and have build-essential installed. Also tried this when I was using Hoary with no success.

Thanks in advance

Nevermind! I should have checked the error message in Google first!

found out I had to use -lglut in the compile command.
