Hi people,

I'm completely new in this area so please don't laugh for silly questions.

So..my questions are:

1) Which specialized text editor you use for programing with OpenGL?

2)What else I need to install so I could program with OpenGL?

Thanks in advance

1) Any editor you use for programming
2) Nothing, basic files (like libraries and headers, if you use C or C++) are already installed with gcc. Also, make sure you have installed proprietary drivers for your graphics card.

I highly recommend codeblocks (http://www.codeblocks.org/) for C++ development on Linux.

Use Eclipse or Netbeans. NetBEans have a plugin for OpenGL, you can editi OpenGL shaders with syntax correction.

http://www.eclipse.org/
http://www.netbeans.org/
The plugin

http://plugins.netbeans.org/PluginPortal/faces/PluginDetailPage.jsp?pluginid=3260

Both supports C/C++ and Java. You can use OpenGL from Java with the JOGL API.

https://jogl.dev.java.net/

Both are cross platform.

In linux make sure that you have an affirmative output with this command:


#glxinfo | grep rendering

This means your hardware is installed correctly.

Bye!
