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:
- ~= pixel format descriptor
- = visual id (integer from 1 - max visuals)
- = type (wn: window, pb: pbuffer, wp: window & pbuffer, bm: bitmap)
- = acceleration (ge: generic, fu: full, no: none)
- = format (i: integer, f: float, c: color index)
- = double buffer (y = yes)
- = swap method (x: exchange, c: copy, u: undefined)
- = stereo (y = yes)
- = total # bits
- = # bits of red
- = # bits of green
- = # bits of blue
- = # bits of alpha
- = # aux buffers
- = # bits of depth
- = # bits of stencil
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.
