Installing GLUT on Ubuntu

Installing GLUT is essential for those who wants to create OpenGL programs in Linux.

To install GLUT on Ubuntu, just simply go to System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager then search for "glut". Mark freeglut3 and freeglut3-dev for installation then click on Apply button.

This will install the OpenGL header files to /usr/include/GL/ and the library object to /usr/lib/libglut.a.
