modeline2fb(8)             Linux frame buffer utils             modeline2fb(8)



NAME
       modeline2fb - simple modeline to fb.modes translator

SYNOPSIS
       modeline2fb [OPTION] [FILES]

DESCRIPTION
       Modeline2fb is a simple Perl script that converts XF86Config-style mod-
       elines to options suitable for a fb.modes file.

       Note that only one option can be successfully enabled at any particular
       time.

OPTIONS
       -d, --depth depth
              Use the given display depth (default is 8).

       -h --help
              Print out a help screen and exit.

ADVANCED OPTIONS
       -r --rounding div
              Sets the vxres divisor (default is 128).

       -x --vxres X,X,X,...
              Sets extra vxres values.

       [FILES]  refers  to  one or more XF86Config files.  Note that all mode-
       lines must be in single-line format.  If no files are given on the com-
       mand line, this program reads from standard in.  This program will also
       write to standard out.

EXAMPLE
       /usr/sbin/modeline2fb -d 16 /etc/X11/XF86Config

SEE ALSO
       fb.modes(5), XF86Config(5)
