In addition to Ubuntu 11, we’ve added binary evaluation packages for the Triton Ocean SDK for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 and OpenSUSE at our download page. We’ve also had enough people use Triton for Linux successfully that we’ve taken the “beta / experimental” label off of these packages.

Be sure to have the GLUT, Xmu, and Xi packages installed in order to run the OpenGL sample application included. For example, under Ubuntu you’d do this with:

sudo apt-get install freeglut3 freeglut3-dev libxmu-dev libxi-dev

We’ve also gotten the OpenSceneGraph samples working under Linux – just make sure you have the OSG_DIR environment variable defined, and you should be able to use the cmake files provided. Thanks to Trajce Nikolov for adding polish to the OSG samples for Linux for us.
