I have tried out your code. I had to zoom out and move until the objects were in view. Can you clarify what about the lights don't work?

You need to move the init() function call AFTER the call to glutEnterGameMode.

This is because glutEnterGameMode creates it's own window, and this window has it's own state associated with it. So, your previous glEnable statements did not affect this window.

Thank you guys.
Moving the Init() function after glutEnterGameMode solve the problem.
