Possible to activate 24/32 bit color support in Lubuntu?

Hi


Is it possible to increase the color to 24 or 32 bit in Lubuntu.

I read somewhere some time ago, you need to compile a new kernel.

Any help or link to the post would be appreciated.

I fixed my own problem, so no need for anyone to reply by following Radxa wiki pages.

Unfortunately it only give me a black screen after following the Radxa wiki page.

I think the problem is because there is no framebuffer driver.

Maybe someone else can also test the solution and see if it works for them.

Hi dewet

you can do as followings

  1. cat << EOF > /etc/init/fbset.conf
  2. # fbset - run fbset to set truecolor fbmo
  3. dedescription "run fbset ASAP"
  4. start on startup and started udev or starting lightdm
  5. task
  6. script
  7. [ -x /bin/fbset ] && /bin/fbset -a -nonstd 1 -depth 32 -rgba "8/0,8/8,8/16,8/24"
  8. end script
  9. EOF
Copy the code
  1. cat << EOF > /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  2. Section "Screen"
  3. Identifier "Default Screen"
  4. DefaultDepth 24
  5. EndSection
  6. EOF
Copy the code

then you should Add the following to /etc/rc.local

  1. service lightdm stop
  2. fbset -a -nonstd 1 -depth 32 -rgba 8/0,8/8,8/16,8/24
  3. service lightdm start
Copy the code
