Default 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

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.
