HI,

I was doing some VC++/OpenGL tutorials on gametutorials.com. That's all for windows I want to know how to do it on Linux.

Can anyone suggest a good place to learn this.

C++/OpenGL programming for Linux.

thanx,

C++ and OpenGL work pretty much the same on any platform: glPushMatrix is the same on Windows and Linux; operator overloading in C++ is the same on Windows and Linux; etc.

Well which bit is causing the problem? What question are you asking? Are you asking "How do I get OpenGL for Linux?", or are you asking "How do I write C++ under Linux?"?

If you're asking the first question, the answer is too look into MesaGL (or if you're lucky your hardware vendors drivers).

If you're asking the second question, you might like to ask elsewhere.
