Strange Colours in AIX

Post by john » Sun Dec 03, 2006 8:54 am

Hi, i was wondering if you could point me to the cause of the problem. I have been running xnview for years fine. Lately, every image is very greeny/yellowy. I am running on a PowerPC AIX server with AIX 5.1 with the XnView v1.68 and libformat v4.16 -- it does not have a graphics card. I get to the server either with cygwin and ssh tunnel from a windows laptop or Xwindows on the same laptop running linux -- both show the yellowy images.

The images appear fine if i use either firefox or xanim to display them.

Here is the output from lslpp -L |grep -i motif
