#162 [Regression] Pop-up menus not working in 2.8.0

moderate (59)

I'm using freeglut version 2.8.0 to follow some tutorials regarding OpenGL. When it came to pop-up menus they doesn't seem to work. I've downgraded my package to 2.6.0 and they work again. I've attached a code sample (extracted from http://www.lighthouse3d.com/tutorials/glut-tutorial/the-code-so-far-iii/ ) compiled with:

$ gcc test.cpp -o test -lglut -lGLU -lGL -lm

It has a pop-up menu.

When I compile this code with version 2.6.0 the pop-up menu works as expected, registered to the right mouse click. Compiling it with version 2.8.0 the pop-up never shows up. The program doesn't crash, nor print any messages; it continues ignoring any pop-up menus registered.

Any other information I can provide I will
Thanks for your patience


  • Code sample

  • Thanks for the report. This has come up on the mailing list as well. I don't have a Linux system, but i hope one of the other devs jumps on this.

  • This is now fixed in r1379.
