OpenGL - beginner needs help

0 Akseli Einola · April 4, 2015
Hi all!

I want to draw simple 2D graphics, basic shapes (lines, circles, triangles etc) with OpenGL. I'm using Code Blocks.
I how yet done nothing. The questions are: what should i download and from where? After downloading all needed libraries and such how do i install/link them properly? And after all that is done and working can you guys and gals give me a link to good c++ OpenGL tutorial on youtube?

Thanks!

P.S. Bucky should do C++ OpenGL tutorial! ;)

Thanks for the advice.

Im following the first tutorial: http://www.opengl-tutorial.org/beginners-tutorials/tutorial-1-opening-a-window/

I got into step 8 and i cannot build the project in Code Blocks. I got the following errors:

I could try Visual Studio, but i prefer Code Blocks. Any ideas?

If i do use Visual Studio, am i stuck with it? Or is it easy to go back Code Blocks and create OpenGL projects after the tutorials? Or should i switch to Visual Studio completely?
