visualinfo -- displays GL extension and visual info
visualinfo [-display display] [-visual id]
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
A summary of options is included below.
Print help and exit.
Allows specifying an X display.
Allows specifying a specific X visual.

GLXINFO(1) General Commands Manual GLXINFO(1)NAME
glxinfo - display info about a GLX extension and OpenGL renderer.
glxinfo [-t] [-v] [-b] [-display displayname]
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.
Specify the display to query.
DISPLAY To get the default host, display number, and screen.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to change 24 bits depth display to 8 bits depth display for Sun Ultra1, running Solaris 8? THANKS in advance. I think that the command is ffbconfig, but it has nothing about depth. (4 Replies)
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.
