View Full Version : What I need to install for programing on Linux???
05-16-2008, 03:02 AM
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.
Both supports C/C++ and Java. You can use OpenGL from Java with the JOGL API.
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.
