I test that Ubuntu 14 can build the project. Beyond that I plan to depend
on feedback like yours to smooth out Linux.

Check out the modulemap for the Linux GLFW. What you need to fix is likely
in there. Honestly, I built it with trial and error.


If you get it working, please let me know what Linux you are using and send
me the code. (github ticket, email, carrier pigeon, whatever).

I looked for something with less friction than GLFW but came up empty. It's
possible to make a pure Swift replacement, but I don't have the resources
to make that happen any time soon.
