Pseudo Colors on Solaris
Mon Sep 19 19:54:00 GMT 2005
I am new to CYGWIN (having used exceed for years) but have been studying
it very intently for weeks now.
I am having trouble getting a Sun Solaris screen to render correctly.
It uses 8bpp pseudo. If I run xwin normally, I get a very dark screen
(like the backlight is out on my LCD). If I set xwin to use 256 colors
in the compatibility tab, my XP desktop drops to 8bpp and I can see my
Solaris screen but the colors are all wrong (white is red, red is red,
blue is green, ...). Xwininfo.exe claims it is Pseudo color. I tested
MI/X for a while using the same compatible settings. I got the same
results with the exception of the colors were right on my Solaris
While searching the mailing list I see the last entries containing
pseudo color also talk about "xwinemu2", is this the fix for this? I
have searched for this file but can not find it (nether can my best
I have also tried setting -cc, -co, -engine, ... with no luck or maybe I
just don't know the correct numbers to feed them.
Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated. (Maybe some of my
hair will grow back ; })
