Downloading FLTK[edit | edit source]

Go to FLTK's software page and click on the latest FLTK 2.0 package. Choose the compression you're able to decompress (bzip2 or gzip) and click on the nearest mirror. Sometimes the mirrors are not up to date, then try another one or pick an older package. Don't use the SourceForge.net project page, it's deprecated.

Installation[edit | edit source]
