I just upgraded my TeX Live installation on Ubuntu 64-bit from 2012 to 2013. After the upgrade, when I tried to render some simple 3D drawings I was not getting the default rendering window to come up. So from the Asymptote manual I added the following lines:
import settings; outformat=""; render=-1;
I get the following error:
$ asy -V 3test.asy /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/asymptote/three.asy: 2906.13: runtime: to support onscreen rendering, please install glut library, run ./configure, and recompile
In TeX Live 2012, even without the suggested configuration options, a command such as the one used above would go right into the OpenGL renderer.
Any suggestions as to what is going on? I am thinking that perhaps the Asymptote that is compiled into TeX Live 2013 is compiled without the glut libraries? Do I need to compile Asymptote directly from source?
