I plan to port a program over from windows, but I do not know what is required to implement Jogl on linux. Apart from the Jogl Libraries and Classes, do I require the native gl libraries? If yes, how do I use them?
I haven't yet tested a Java application with Jogl on Linux (because I've to learn how to use Jogl first :-) , however basically you should just
have to give Jogl's native ".so"-library and the platform independant ".jar"-library to your JRE or SDK on Linux.
The two files can be found in the archive "jogl-linux.tar.gz" on http://jogl.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?folderID=128
If your Linux JRE knows these two files, it can run any Java-Jogl-applications. (Provided of course that your Linux has got an OpenGL driver, which it usually does).
To "port" a Java-Jogl-application from one platform to another then is just to copy the JAR-file(s) of the application and voila: there you are.
