fbconfig - Frame Buffer configuration utility


fbconfig [ -list | -help ] fbconfig [ -dev device_filename ] [ -prconf ] [ -propt ] [ -res ] fbconfig [ -dev device_filename ] [ -res resolution- specification ] device_specifie_options


fbconfig is the generic command line interface to query and configure frame buffer attributes. The following form of fbconfig is the interface for the dev- ice independent operations performed by fbconfig: fbconfig [ -list | -help ] The following form of fbconfig is the interface for confi- guring a frame buffer: fbconfig [ -dev device_filename ] [ -prconf ] [ -propt ] [ -res ] If the -dev option is omitted, the default frame buffer (/dev/fb or /dev/fb0) is assumed. In the absence of specific options, the response will depend upon the device specific configuration program and how it responds to no options


The following options are supported: -dev device_filename Specify the FFB special file. The default is /dev/fbs/ffb0. -help Print the fbconfig command usage summary. This is the default option. -list Print the list of installed frame buffers and associ- ated device specific configuration routines.

Because of limitations in the m64 kernel driver and related software, fbconfig (with the -prconf option) is unable to distinguish between a current depth of 24 or 8+24. The -propt option returns the depth specified in the OWconfig file, which will be in effect following the next restart of the window system. The xwininfo utility, usually shipped in the package containing frame buffer software (such as SUNWxwplt), reports current depth of a specified window. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 17 Jul 2001 2
