How to cut 4mm thick glass ?

I have an old IKEA shelf with glass doors I'd like to custom fit into a space in my work area. I need to cut the shelf by 2 feet to get it to fit.

I tried cutting the glass (4mm thick) with a $3 glass cutter from harbor freight, but it didn't work.

Do I need a carbide tip glass cutter like this?

Door glass and shelves are usually tempered and cannot be cut. You will need to order tempered glass that is made to fit.
