NAME

display-fbdev : Display using Linux kernel framebuffer devices  

SYNOPSIS

display-fbdev: [ [-noinput] | [ [-nokbd] | [-nomouse] ] ] [-novt]
               [-physz=<sizex>,<sizey>[dpi]] [<framebuffer>]

 

DESCRIPTION

Uses the Linux /dev/fb* devices to do fullscreen graphics.

When using a regular fbdev driver, /etc/fb.modes is used to determine the available modes for the device. Driver timings and resolutions can be automatically obtained when running under KGIcon.  

OPTIONS

framebuffer
The filename of the framebuffer target to use. The default is to get it from the FRAMEBUFFER environment, or the framebuffer associated with the current console if that is unset.

-nokbd
Do not open any libraries for keyboard input.

-nomouse
Do not open any libraries for mouse input.

-noinput
Same as both -nokbd and -nomouse.

-novt
Disable virtual console support.

-physz=<sizex>,<sizey>[dpi]
This option will provide a physical screen size for applications which wish to remain resolution independent. sizex,:p:sizey are the x,y size of the screen in millimeters, unless the optional dpi string is affixed, in which case, they represent resolution in dots-per-inch.

 

FEATURES

Accelerated when using KGIcon or matroxfb.
