I'm not really sure about *nix, but as far as I've heard, yes, it does run. GLUI depends on GLUT.
So the dependency chain would be GLUI -> GLUT -> OpenGL (SDL_OpenGL).
Hope you manage to complete what you want
Oh, so that is how they are work
Do you have a link that contain how to setting glut and glui in an IDE?
I have search in google, but it really hard to find the correct one :S
