Yes there is, but it's not as straightforward since nobody ported
gtkglext yet.

You should be able to create the context yourself using glx
(not sure about systems without xorg though).
I haven't done this myself yet so I'm afraid I cannot help you directly
but you can take a look at the glchess source in the gnome-games
repository to see an example

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the link.  I finally got a chance to look at it.  But,
afaict, the glchess source you mention uses GTK+2's Drawable class and
glXSwapBuffers to do some indirect drawing in GL.  

What I am after is a straight forward GL context that can easily be used
in GTK+3.

Is there no such thing (using vala or c)?

thanks -august.
