Setting 24 Bit Color

To set your default X server visual to 24-bit TrueColor, edit the following file:


Be sure to back up first. To set it to 24 bit change it to this:

:0 secure /usr/bin/X11/X -bs -nobitscale -c -class TrueColor -depth 24 -solidroot sgilightblue -cursorFG red -cursorBG white

All one line. Save, log out then in. You can make sure the resolution is set by running xdpyinfo. Look for "default visual id":

 number of visuals:    26 
 default visual id:  0x34 

   visual id:    0x34 
   class:    TrueColor 
   depth:    24 planes 
   available colormap entries:    256 per subfield 
   red, green, blue masks:    0xff, 0xff00, 0xff0000 
   significant bits in color specification:    8 bits
