XDM Color Depth Configuration

XDM Color Depth Configuration

Post by Namocha » Sun, 24 Aug 1997 04:00:00

HELP!! XDM will run, but I can't make it use a color depth any greater
than 8.  Xwindows runs fine using "startx -- -bpp 16", but I've tried
this(see below) and it doesn't seem to work:

Xservers file:

# $XConsortium: Xserv.ws.cpp,v 1.3 93/09/28 14:30:30 gildea Exp $
# Xservers file, workstation prototype
# This file should contain an entry to start the server on the
# local display; if you have more than one display (not screen),
# you can add entries to the list (one per line).  If you also
# have some X terminals connected which do not support XDMCP,
# you can add them here as well.  Each X terminal line should
# look like:
#       XTerminalName:0 foreign
#:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/startx -- -bpp 16

Is the last line of this file correct?  Any help pointing me in the
right direction will be greatly appreciated!!




1. Switching colour depth when using xdm

I have just set up xdm and xlogin and it works fine.

My problem is that how can I change colour depth of X window? When I was
startx command I can give -bpp 16 if I want higher colour depth but now
I don't know
how. We have a program which only runs on bit colour then again netscape
much nicer with colour depth 16. I would be great to restart the X
window with different
colour depth.

Thanks in advance.
