strange colors of screen capture
Hello, there,

I am using StarCD, on a remote SGI machine, to produce some pictures of the claculated result. However, I encounter a starnge problem: the pictures always get an urgly yellow background.

It looks just fine on screen but twists the colors of both foreground and background when saved to a file.

This happens when I use ssh on my linux box to connect the SGI, and disappears when use XWin32 (or Exceed) on Windows 98. But I do need to use Linux much more often.

What I have done to try to solve out the problem: 1) issue xstdcmap -all on SGI then initiate PROSTAR; 2) replace /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb.txt on my linux with /usr/lib/X11/rgb.txt on SGI, restart local X server, ssh connect to SGI, then start PROSTAR; 3) the same as 2), but before starting PROSTAR, issue xstdcmap -all.

All these could not get rid of the problem.

Any suggestion to sort out this annoying problem?

Many thanks,

Jiaying Xu

Re: strange colors of screen capture
plot to the case.plot file and convert the pictures after that. In prostar:

term ,, file rast $ repl

produdes a file cassed "case.plot"

Then run the "plot" command from the command prompt to convert the file to something else.
