As any other library. Search for a tutorial, look in the manual, etc.

What exactly do you want to configure, anyway?

OpenGL is almost certainly installed on the system (shaders being used for cinnamon effects and such), and the header file is almost certainly present, too (unless you've manually deleted it).

There's a compileable, working "New OpenGL project" template within Code::Blocks as well as a GLFW template. Apart from maybe having to do something like apt-get install glew if you want to use GLEW, what else could you possibly need to do?
