Are you talking about the glaux library?

If so it is a windows only library, I think at one time there was a linux version of it. But I am sure it is not longer supported.

I use glut library in place of it, it has some of the same primitive functions a the glaux. plus window creation, mouse and keyboard routines.

One draw back is glut does not have a BMP loader like glaux, but BMP is not the best format for openGL.

nehe.gamedev.net has BMP loading code on his tutor for linux.

I personally use TGA file format because it support alpha channel.

Just pointing it out: Though all the functions in have the aux prefix, they are all in the glaux.dll file and declared in the glaux.h file.
