Does anyone know how to create 3d fonts under linux, in a 3d space?

Note sure what you mean.

Maybe you mean:

- create 3D models of letters
- display said models.

If so, well, that's what you do ... make some models and render them http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

I want to create them dynamically on the fly within my application, from truetype outlines... not bitmap files. Basically, I want to set up a input box for text and let the user choose the font/bevel/extrusion...

any thoughts?

I am unable to gltt to work. aparently they abandoned development a while ago, and my system is quite up todate, anywhere else I can get some source code?

Theres also a project called GLF, but it uses its own font files, much simpler than gltt though
