TimG - in response to you asking if anyone has got apps in OpenGL running on a Pi - Yes is my answer but with headaches. I am quite new to programming and wanted to try and learn Python / OpenGL. Did the download and install, it now will import into Python 3.4 (Raspian Jessie)
If your referring to the experimental Raspi-Config OpenGL setting to enable it within Raspbian - My whole OS crashed on me when I did this (activated GL in raspi-config) and I had to re install my OS on SD card. I have however installed it manually with a tar.gz download file, then ran the script in terminal to install it. if I open Python 3 and type " >>> import OpenGL " it works with no errors
I followed a tutorial to make a spinning cube and the very first example worked.... here is the exact page with the code: (scroll to the bottom to see it all written in full)
https://pythonprogramming.net/opengl-ro ... -tutorial/
The cube span but I had to change something. If you need my exact code that runs and works let me know and I'll try and share it with you somehow
The next tutorial added colour to the cube - it didn't work on either of my Python versions. The problem is MOST of the PyOpenGL tutorials expect you to have a good knowledge of OpenGL and I don't even know Python that well yet. Plus most people don't tell you wether they are running Python and OpenGL on Windows Machines (with graphics cards and accelerators) or Mac, or Linux - Then there's the different versions of Python that want things fed to them differently. I want to make a 3D exploration game with a level to move around in and I am ready to give-up. I'm no genius but normally these technical differences will make a difference!
I got the cube to spin, but i couldn't add colour, or follow ANY of the following tutorials. Please let me know if You make any progress
