Regular glut doesn't work you will have to download and install the one built for openGL ES. Its been over a year since I attempted it so I can't be much help.

You might want to try glshim , i myself do not know how well
it works with GLUT , though :


FreeGLUT has OpenGL ES support , but i guess it needs some
adjustment to run on the Pi with HW support.

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.

Just tried a project with GLUT and it works (now).
Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get install freeglut3-dev g++

Is all you need to get started.
When you compile your program just link GLUT.
Gonna try more stuff with GLUT on Raspian now, this really makes so much fun.
