NAME

gtf – calculate VESA GTF mode lines

SYNOPSIS

gtf h-resolution v-resolution refresh [-v|–verbose] [-f|–fbmode] [-x|–xorgmode]

DESCRIPTION

Gtf is a utility for calculating VESA GTF modes. Given the desired
horizontal and vertical resolutions and refresh rate (in Hz), the
parameters for a matching VESA GTF mode are printed out. Two output
formats are supported: mode lines suitable for the Xorg xorg.conf(5)
file, and mode parameters suitable for the Linux fbset(8) utility.

OPTIONS

-v|–verbose
Enable verbose printouts This shows a trace for each step of
the computation.

-x|–xorgmode
Print the mode parameters as Xorg-style mode lines. This is
the default format.

-f|–fbset
Print the mode parameters in a format suitable for fbset(8).
