Glut is a deprecated library and in my opinion, should be not used anymore. (not compatible with newer version of OpenGL, etc)
It can be replaced with GLFW to create quick graphical applications.

This first PR is moving the SofaGuiGlut to the applications directory, in case any people are still using it.
Actually, the code was not compatible with the current SofaGui API and was not compiling.
The code is now compilable and launchable anyway.

Any reference to Glut are removed from the SofaFramework (header, CMake) and from runSofa.

Lastly, a replacement using gflw will be pushed in the near future, for people wishing to have a simple GUI without the heavy-duty Qt Framework.

This PR:

  • builds with SUCCESS for all platforms on the CI.
  • does not generate new warnings.
  • does not generate new unit test failures.
  • does not generate new scene test failures.
  • does not break API compatibility.
  • is more than 1 week old (or has fast-merge label).

Reviewers will merge only if all these checks are true.

Would be better to add every app disabled and let them fail when running find_package(GLUT REQUIRED) if enabled, no?
I don't think this CMakeLists should be smartly checking GLUT_FOUND. It's not its dependency.

I was wondering the same, but I was lazy to add the check in all the projects needing glut.
But I guess you are right so I will add it in those projects directly
