    Question Opengl Window Manager?

    I've been programming Opengl for a little while now... I've gone from using GLUT to Win32 and back... and back. Now, I've started programming in linux, i have no idea what I'm going to use. What libraries and headers do you suggest for window management? Should I just do this directly through linux programming?

    Question Probelm...

    The one problem with glut was even though it was universal... mostly... it didn't have something to load the image files for texturing. It was great all around exept for that one thing. Unless I'm wrong, which would be awesome... because if it did... I'd love to use glut.

    i dont think GLUT has any support for loading image files but you can find source (or tutorials on how to write your own) on many openGL tutorial sites. the sticky at the top of the board has links...
