View Full Version : Netbeans + GLUT + Cygwin

04-12-10, 12:43 PM
I have been working to get them all to work together all day. I was able to get my app to build successfully but it fails to run! I tested it on Visual C++ and it worked but I need it on Netbeans for now. I get this error when I press debug. Any tips?

Do you need X11?

dxdiag says I have DX11. The thing with Visual C++ is that it has been buggy as hell lately for me. I can't create new projects/open others. I really need an alternative.

No, X11 is the Linux/GNU window system.


Try installing it in Cygwin (use the install package manager).

Oh, OK! Downloaded everything related to X11 but still getting the same error.

that's great but have you started the X display system?

typically you can just type 'startx' (I would refer to cygwin documentation though)

If that doesn't work, also ensure the $DISPLAY env variable in cygwin is properly setup, this can be checked using 'echo $DISPLAY'
