View Full Version : Subwindows work under Windows, not Linux or Mac?

Hi all,

I have a program that I wrote that relies on the use of OpenGL glut subwindows. In particular, I have several small subwindows that are placed above the main OpenGL window.

I've noticed however that whereas my code works fine under Windows, under Linux & Mac these subwindows do not respond to my resize requests properly and they seem to take up the entire window.

Is this a known problem with a known workaround?

Can you post code so that we can try ?

If it doesn't work, it doesn't work, there's nothing you can do but to try to compile another glut and test with it. You can also fix your glut.

What other gluts are there on Linux besides freeglut, or the default Apple one on Mac?
