Beginner Questions: xorg-conf, inittab?, escape-color-codes?

Postby twotowers » 2018-03-12 01:09

466Mhz ibook (clamshell) with Debian Jessie

QUESTION ONE - gui errors
I've reinstalled Debian Jessie on my old iBook, but some of the things that worked before no longer seem to work

I installed xorg-xserver without a window manager and get a login screen, but the resolution seems off...(the login window takes up half the screen and is off center, the mouse cursor crosses crosses from the top half of the screen to the bottom half of the screen, showing that the bottom half of the screen is on the top of the display, and the top of the screen is on the bottom)

i've tried downloading the appropriate xorg.conf file from http://mac.linux.be/content/xorgconf-files but get a black screen
I've tried using xorg -configure to generate an xorg.conf file but get the same black screen

(since things seem closer to working without the xorg.conf file, I'm posting the /var/log/Xorg.0.log from starting up without the xorg.conf file) (see below)


QUESTION TWO: no inittab
Another question about the updated Jessie is that there is no inittab
I work a lot with virtual terminals and used to add extra virtual terminals past tty7. Also I came across quingy which seemed like an appealing tool, but the docs said to call it from inittab instead of getty. So is there someplace 'new' in the system where we can configure the creation of virtual terminals?

QUESTION THREE - escape codes for colors
Finally, before I had always pasted the following into my .bash_profile to get more usable colors in vim (virtual terminals) but it no longer works like it used to. (I need the black on white background because of the dim screen on the clamshell ibooks). I am able to use setterm to get black on white in the terminals, but I'm not having much success with black on white with the default vim colorschemes. (this is lower priority for now, but if there's a simpler way with the Jessie updates, it seems like it might be worth asking :-) )

Code: Select all
if [ "$TERM" = "linux" ]; then
    echo -en "\e]P0232323" #black
    echo -en "\e]P82B2B2B" #darkgrey
    echo -en "\e]P1D75F5F" #darkred
    echo -en "\e]P9E33636" #red
    echo -en "\e]P287AF5F" #darkgreen
    echo -en "\e]PA98E34D" #green
    echo -en "\e]P3D7AF87" #brown
    echo -en "\e]PBFFD75F" #yellow
    echo -en "\e]P48787AF" #darkblue
    echo -en "\e]PC7373C9" #blue
    echo -en "\e]P5BD53A5" #darkmagenta
    echo -en "\e]PDD633B2" #magenta
    echo -en "\e]P65FAFAF" #darkcyan
    echo -en "\e]PE44C9C9" #cyan
    echo -en "\e]P7E5E5E5" #lightgrey
    echo -en "\e]PFFFFFFF" #white
    clear #for background artifacting
fi


I've tried searching for answers to all these without any luck...so even a nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!!

That's oldstable now, why not try stretch instead?

the resolution seems off...(the login window takes up half the screen and is off center, the mouse cursor crosses crosses from the top half of the screen to the bottom half of the screen, showing that the bottom half of the screen is on the top of the display, and the top of the screen is on the bottom)

Please post the full output of `xrandr`

add extra virtual terminals past tty7

escape codes for colors

The code you have posted will only work in the console screen (TTY), is this your intention?

Also, Debian's bash package supplies ~/.profile, if you add your own ~/.bash_profile then ~/.profile will no longer be read.

sorry about that...
and yes...(firmware-linux-nonfree)

I saw something somewhere that the older ATI drivers are now split into 4 different drivers...searching to try to find answers along these lines (but this is probably why the downloaded xorg.conf files from mac.linux.be(?) no longer work

So I'm currently trying to figure out how how to edit the X -confiure(d) xorg.conf file to make it work :-)

Have you tried deleting it?

I think Noah used an Xorg configuration file to get the screens on the Ark working but it should be automagical for most users these days ;)

Simple:
Used X -configure to create an xorg.conf
edited the file to adjust horizontal sync and vertical refresh
set the 'mode' to 800x600 (native resolution for ibook)

I'll post the actual details when I get a chance :-)

Thanks everyone
