Netbeans + GLUT + Cygwin
1 Attachment(s)
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?

Re: Netbeans + GLUT + Cygwin
Do you need X11?

Re: Netbeans + GLUT + Cygwin
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.

Re: Netbeans + GLUT + Cygwin
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'
