FreeGlut Problem

Issue #47 resolved
Former user created an issue

Hello, I'm posting here since I did not see any other method of contact. I am getting an error when I try to run any of the tutorials. The console says:

"freeglut (./Test): glXCreateContextAttribsARB not found"

when I run the executables. This is probably very simple, but I need the help.

    If that function cannot be found, then your installed driver does not support OpenGL 3.3, which is required to use the tutorials. If updating your graphics driver isn't enough to make the error go away, then there's nothing I can do.

    Aha, I see. I'm in a weird situation where I must use an older driver in order to use Unity on Ubuntu. I guess I'll disable it and try the newer driver without Unity.

    Thanks for the tip.

    OK, and here's the error messages I get after I've switched drivers. Any idea on this one? Thanks in advance!
