    Re: IDE OpenGL

    Sounds good.
    Learn to program OpenGL with the freeglut framework.

    Later, when you create bigger OpenGL applications (like SecondLife and similar , then move to Panda 3D..., Allegro..., SDL..., Irrlicht..., Ogre 3D... or OSG...

    EDIT: Compile panda3d on Ubuntu 8.04... (test)

    Go back to...

    OMG moma, I've never seen such a complete set of instructions on how to install / setup OpenGL on ubuntu before. I hope you don't mind, but I am going to reproduce these instructions on my website for other people needing this kind of help. http://www.glchronicles.mccolm.org

    I installed the glfw but I do not know what to put when the codeblock ask me Please select a GLFW's location....

    Thx a lot both of you I REALLY appreciated your help !

    P.S. May I start porgramming in OpenGL after covering just the basics of C++ such as loops, functions and array?
    Or, do I need more C++?
    It should be enough.

    You might want to learn about various data structures (stack, list, queue) since it would help you organize your data.

    You might want to also read about and understand what a state machine is, since that is how OpenGL is organized.
    I am infallible, you should know that by now.

    Re: IDE OpenGL

    I'm trying to install the stuff Moma mentioned but I'm getting this error:

    Code:
    alex@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install libcodeblocks0 codeblocks libwxsmithlib0 codeblocks-contrib
    Reading package lists... Done

    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    E: Broken packages
    I've already got libwxgtk2.8-0 installed, so I don't know what it's complaining about.

    read the error carefully:

    libcodeblocks0: Depends: libwxgtk2.8-0 (>= 2.8.6) but 2.8.4.0-0ubuntu3 is to be installed

    libwxgtk2.8-0 is not new enough ...

    Re: IDE OpenGL

    Hi, I just followed the Hardy Heron steps for installing Code::Blocks, freeglut, and wxwidgets. I tried compiling the sample and everything runs fine except for one small but annoying problem: The GLUT window is missing the title bar. It is actually there but it just doesn't show it meaning I can click a non-existant "x" and it will close the window. I tried compiling it using Code::Blocks and gcc using -lglut if that helps. Both do the same thing. Comparing what I see on my screen and the posted screenshot, the difference is the title bar obviously and the fact that I have a terminal type thing running which is what I think is wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for the long post.

    Re: IDE OpenGL

    I also suggest Code::Blocks, it's a great IDE and includes project wizards for Opengl, GLUT and SDL.

    Please check a small howto:

    Re: IDE OpenGL

    I have installed the freeglut but when I started to build the glut project. I got the following error:

    cannot find -lXxf86vm
    Trying to figure out my life.
