Graphics.h fails in Linux ?

_Are you a Linux critic saying graphics doesn’t work on ?

Haven’t explored SDL graphic part thrro’ C?

Switched on to linux recently and breaking your heads on graphics libraries for linux ?_

The packages you need before working on with graphics library in linux are:

Try installing thro’ console by

sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2 libsdl-image1.2-dev guile-1.8 guile-1.8-dev libsdl1.2debian-arts libartsc0-dev libaudiofile-dev libesd0-dev libdirectfb-dev libdirectfb-extra libfreetype6-dev libxext-dev x11proto-xext-dev libfreetype6(upgrade) libaa1 libaa1-dev libslang2-dev libasound2 libasound-dev

or select the package in **synaptic **it will automatically resolve dependency’s

LibGraph Installing and configuring:

First download libgraph from here

Then as usual extract tar.gz and run

./configure make make install ** write some c with graphics implemenation and name it as **test.c

Thats it :D

Now compile and run the file as:

**g++ test.cpp -o test.o -lgraph And execute the program by ./test.o ** -lgraph links with graphics library

if you get any shared library error ( ofcourse most people get this thing)

then shift as sudo cp /usr/local/lib/libgraph.* /usr/lib

you may now see a SDL output window showing smooth graphical 32 bit output (rather resorted dos window :P )
