Installing libEve & libRGL package

Hi, I am trying to install libEve and libRGL package on ROOT.
However I cannot find them at prerequisites webpage.
I checked that there was a same question at this forum, but that answer is not enough to solve this problem.
How can I get those packages?
(I use ubuntu-16.04 and ROOT-6.08.06)

You’re building yourself from scratch, right?

You’d need libmesaglu-dev … or however it’s called in debian. This pulls in everything else you need.


Thanks to reply.
I downloaded xlibmesa-glu-dev before building root.
However, nothing is changed. Those two libraries still missing.

What does cmake say? I see this:

-- Looking for OpenGL
-- Found OpenGL: /usr/lib64/
-- Enabled support for:  asimage astiff builtin_afterimage builtin_ftgl builtin_gl2ps builtin_glew builtin_llvm builtin_unuran cling cxx11 exceptions explicitlink fortran genvector imt krb5 mathmore memstat **opengl** pch python shadowpw shared ssl thread tmva x11 xft xml

I must admit I don’t know the details about cmake opengl search … but I did know everything about the configure based one :slight_smile:

What GL do you have installed and what is your graphics card? Does glxgears test program work? I think it’s in glx-utils. What does ‘ldd /usr/bin/glxgears’ say?


Thanks to reply again.
I solved the problem. By using ccmake and turning off to on opengl option and building again.
I appreciate to your advice.
