Openwin Resolution fixed ??.

Post by Miller_Alan_Geor » Tue, 13 Sep 1994 18:00:43



I have noticed that our Decs workstations have a resolution of 1200 by 1000 under
motif, but I have run into problems writting code to run under Solaris and motif
since the resolution of our sparc seems to be less than 1200 1000
its actually Width 1152 by 900

Is this resolution fixed ? Or is there a software switch to change the
resolution.(We have a Gx Turbo card installed on that sparc)

Any pointers would be helpful
regards

You should probably better fix your software. Suns 1152x900 are somewhat
odd (standards are 1024x768 and 1280x1024), but X is quite independend of
a special display size (if all, it depends on a sufficient resolution, i.e.
no gameboy 640x480 crap). A software that strongly depends on a hardcoded
screensize is treated broken on X.

1. Openwin - sreen resolution / refreshrate

Hi

I am searching for a way to change te resolution and the refreshrate of
the Openwin-screen with sun's solaris.
I allready know its based on Xsun, similar to X11, but i have not found
the equivalent to "xf86config" in linux systems, neither a config-tool
...
i must add, i've not worked with solaris till now, i am used to linux, so
be patient with me.
i've allready searched numerous man-pages, but found nothing (perhaps
because i got tired of reading ? ...)
plz help,

        Stivi

2. Command to backup

3. /opt/openwin instead of /usr/openwin

4. How do I *really* defragment a VFAT (Win95) partition?

5. can't get openwin to run openwin-init

6. nestat internals

7. /usr/openwin/bin/openwin - what does this guy suppose to do

8. Compaq LTE 5300 and RH 6.0 - mouse detect lockup

9. fix for kallsyms module symbol resolution problem

10. fb mode for Apple 21-inch fixed resolution monitor

11. resolution to "top" causing Solaris 2.1 panic (fixed in 2.2)

12. Screen resolution fix?

13. Fix POSIX timers to give CLOCK_MONOTONIC full resolution and tie it to xtime instead of jiffies
