Problem with Ghostscript and Trident TVGA9000

Post by a4160.. » Fri, 06 Oct 1995 04:00:00



Hi there,

I tried to get Ghostscript to work with my Trident TVGA9000 video card.
This card comes with 512Kb video memory installed so it should be able
to give me a resolution of 800x600x256. (This works under Windhoze.).

I tried

    gs -sDEVICE=linux -r640x480x256 tiger.ps

which works fine. But when I try

    gs -sDEVICE=linux -r800x600x256 tiger.ps

the screen becomes distorted and starts flickering.
I tried to change the settings in libvga.config but nothing seems to work.
The documentation on Ghostscript and svgalib wasn't helpfull either.

Will somebody, please, explain to me how to use this high-resolution mode
with Ghostscript?

FYI, I am using Infomagic's Slackware (March 1995) distribution which
comes with Ghostscript v.2.6.1 by Aladdin Enterprises.

I also tried to find old usenet messages about this subject but I don't
now where to retrieve them. Perhaps sombody would be so kind to inform
me on this one to.

Thanks in advance,

Dr. Erwin J. W. Lam

Well ... I simply have XConfig set to startup X in 1024x768x256.
Then, when I run gs from xterm, I get ghostscript in 1024x768x256
by default.  Haven't tried fooling around with the -r switch, though.
And I have 1MB on my 9400cxi.

1. Help:setting up X-windows for Trident TVGA9000 card.

I have a trident TVGA9000, with 512k. I also have an Aamazing 1024x768
NI muti-sync monitor. I am wondering how I would go about setting this up
for 800x600 256 colour mode. I want set this up, right now my x-windows is
looking for only VGA16. I don't know how to get the 256 svga into the
setup. If anyone knows about this type of thing, I would greatly appreciate
any help.
