I've been trying to find a GUI library (Linux/Windows) that can render its widgets using OpenGL (no results so far). The main requirement: library should reuse existing OpenGL3 context. Second main requirement: library should be light weight. Do such libs exist? I am even ok to fork some stuff that can render widgets via OpenGL and adapt it to my needs.

The [url="https://sourceforge.net/projects/guichan/"]guichan[/url] library mat be what you're looking for. Lightweight, uses existing GL context. No longer actively maintained but it's open source and not hard to maintain yourself. Problem is it's GL2.

Thanks a lot! That won't be a big problem to port it to GL3 if lib appears to be handy.

Also Check out [url="http://www.cegui.org.uk/wiki/index.php/Main_Page"]CEGUI[/url] ([url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CEGUI"]Wikipedia-Article[/url] for a short overview) It's pretty powerful, cross plattform and available as package on many linux-systems (certainly on ubuntu).
