My question is "Whats a good book on how to make graphics for Xwindows?"
Here is a description to help you with my question:
I know (from my DOS days) how to draw an image on the screen.
Now I want to learn how to draw an image onto the desk top, with out a boarder around it. I want it to look like its sitting there along with the other icons.
This will be for a "card playing game" I don't want the game to run in its own window, I want it to be played on the desktop, just like how you would play on the table.
What I need:
* a good book on how to handle graphics in Xwindows (Flux box)
* or a nice tutorial.
* can I use GCC in linux, to write graphic programs for xwindows? (it has all the library's that I would need, right?)
* if I write this for Linux Slackware 10.2 will it be compatible with all vers of Linux?
I have written some of this program in good ol QBasic just to test its logic but I need to learn graphics to make it really come together.
This is really starting at the bottom, and I don't really know were to start.
Thanks ahead of time.
