I'm having difficulty getting graphics into my C++ program. using Ubuntu 11.10
I /think/ my problem is simply my inability to download and install graphics libraries. Basically at the #include ... section of code i get an error every time about being unable to find xyz which i haven't managed to fix. Ive tried installing several different ones on several different development programs with no success.
My questions are as follows:
1.) What library would you recommend for an exceptionally simple graphics program? 2D, and nothing more than printing out pixels, lines and circles are needed. (or what libraries might I already have and be unaware of)
2.) How do you install such a thing onto a Linux machine? I believe this has been my downfall so far, VERY detailed instructions are probably required for me I'm afraid.
3.) Where can I get some basic details of how to use the functions contained in said library?
