Subject: [gentoo-user] How to set the DefaultColorDepth?
Date: Sun, 28 Feb 2010 06:24:35
1 Hi all,
3 I'm trying to get Thief "The Dark Project" working under Wine. It
4 seems it's having trouble switching to 16bit colour mode (I'm in 24bit
5 colour mode normally) so I wanted to try and set the colour depth to
6 16bit.
8 This used to be fairly easy as you could change this in xorg.conf but
9 this file is now virtually empty. KDE doesn't seem to have anything in
10 System Settings. I have an "NVIDIA X Server Settings" app but it
11 "cannot apply" as it would require writing to xorg.conf. It proposes a
12 full xorg.conf like we used to have a long time ago. I'm wondering
13 whether that is still the appropriate way to do this.
15 What is the proper way to set the DefaultColorDepth?
17 Cheers,
18 Hilco
