Adriana,

        Hello and welcome to the "freeglut" community.  The "freeglut" library provides a windowing system that shields you from X server calls, although I think it uses X itself.  (I'm not a Linux expert, but there are a lot of function calls within "freeglut" that begin with the letter "X".)

        The "freeglut" SourceForge page is

http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeglut

The home page is

http://freeglut.sourceforge.net/

The tarball has some "freeglut" demonstration programs.

        The "freeglut" library is an open-source clone of Mark Kilgard's GLUT library, so the GLUT documentation works for "freeglut" as well.  The GLUT pages contain a lot of demonstration programs that will also work with "freeglut".  Finally, if you have any questions this is a good place to ask them.

Subject: [Freeglut-developer] Freeglut question

Hello.

I would like to develop an application using Open GL, under Linux, that can run without loading the X Server. Is it suitable to use freeglut and how?

Perhaps you can recommed some tutorials, websites etc.

Thanks,
Adriana
