visualinfo -- displays GL extension and visual info SYNOPSIS
visualinfo [-display display] [-visual id] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the visualinfo command. visualinfo is a small utility that displays all available visuals, aka. pixelformats, in an OpenGL system along with renderer version information. It shows a table of all the visuals that support OpenGL along with their capabilities. The format of the table is similar to that of glxinfo on Unix systems: visual ~= pixel format descriptor id = visual id (integer from 1 - max visuals) tp = type (wn: window, pb: pbuffer, wp: window & pbuffer, bm: bitmap) ac = acceleration (ge: generic, fu: full, no: none) fm = format (i: integer, f: float, c: color index) db = double buffer (y = yes) dw = swap method (x: exchange, c: copy, u: undefined) st = stereo (y = yes) sz = total # bits r = # bits of red g = # bits of green b = # bits of blue a = # bits of alpha axbf = # aux buffers dpth = # bits of depth stcl = # bits of stencil OPTIONS
A summary of options is included below. -h --help Print help and exit. -display display Allows specifying an X display. -visual id Allows specifying a specific X visual. SEE ALSO

glxinfo - display info about a GLX extension and OpenGL renderer. SYNOPSIS
glxinfo [-t] [-v] [-b] [-display displayname] DESCRIPTION
glxinfo lists information about the GLX extension, OpenGL capable visuals, and the OpenGL renderer on an X server. The GLX and renderer info includes the version and extension attributes. The visual info lists the GLX visual attributes available for each OpenGL capable vis- ual (e.g. whether the visual is double buffered, the component sizes, Z-buffering depth, etc). Command line options include: -t By default the visual info is presented in a concise 80 character wide tabular format. The -t option directs glxinfo to produce a wider, more readable tabular format. -v Directs glxinfo to generate a verbose format output style for the visual list similar to the info of xdpyinfo. -b Print the ID of the "best" visual on screen 0. -l Print interesting OpenGL limits. -i Use indirect rendering connection only. -display displayname Specify the display to query. ENVIRONMENT
DISPLAY To get the default host, display number, and screen. SEE ALSO

Exceed and offscreen rendering

Hi everyone. I made a program which renders a 3D scene into a pbuffer/pixmap (if pbuffer aren't supported) in order to export it to a postscript file. On a RHEL4 (32/64 bits) or whatever distribution may be, it works just fine. I'm using Exceed when I'm working under WinXP and each time I run my... (0 Replies)
