    What is your distro? This should be available in your package manager without having to download and install.

    There is no real need to "install" glut. All you do is move the lib files to your /lib/ (where your project can access them) and similiarly move the header files to where you have your other header files.

    it is as KingX has described, there is no installation needed. When you compile the code you need simply add the header files to the include path. You can use the -I parameter with the g++ compiler. You would be able to install them with the package manager if you were using a more up to date distro. Then they would most likely be findable on the include path by the compiler without explicitly passing a flag.
