Installing C++ graphics libraries

C++ doesn't have any support for graphics, but some C++ coursework uses graphics, so if you want to do coursework at home without logging into CUED you'll need to install graphics libraries as well as a compiler. Here's a list of courses and related libraries

Some of these libraries (openGL for example) might already be installed on your machine, but to compile programs that use them you'll need more than just the libraries - you'll need include files, etc (sometimes called a "development kit"). Here are some installation instructions - note that the list is currently incomplete.
