NAME

       xvidtune - video mode tuner for Xorg

SYNOPSIS

       xvidtune [ -show | -prev | -next | -unlock ] [ -toolkitoption ... ]

DESCRIPTION

       Xvidtune    is   a   client   interface   to   the   X   server   video   mode   extension
       (XFree86-VidModeExtension).

       When given one of the non-toolkit options, xvidtune provides a command line  interface  to
       either print or switch the video mode.

       Without  any  options  (or  with  only  toolkit options) it presents the user with various
       buttons and sliders that can be used to interactively adjust  existing  video  modes.   It
       will also print the settings in a format suitable for inclusion in an xorg.conf file.

       Normally   the   Xorg   X   servers   only   allow   changes   to   be   made   with   the
       XFree86-VidModeExtension from clients connected via a local connection type.

       Note:  The original mode settings can be restored by pressing the `R' key, and this can be
       used to restore a stable screen in situations where the screen becomes unreadable.

       The available buttons are:

       Left
       Right
       Up
       Down
                 Adjust  the  video  mode  so  that  the display will be moved in the appropriate
                 direction.

       Wider
       Narrower
       Shorter
       Taller
                 Adjust the video mode so that the display size is altered appropriately.

       Quit      Exit the program.

       Apply     Adjust the current video mode to match the selected settings.

       Auto      Cause the Up/Down/Right/Left, Wider/Narrower/Shorter/Taller,  Restore,  and  the
                 special S3 buttons to be applied immediately.  This button can be toggled.

       Test      Temporarily switch to the selected settings.

       Restore   Return the settings to their original values.

       Fetch     Query the server for its current settings.

       Show      Print  the currently selected settings to stdout in xorg.conf "Modeline" format.
                 The primary selection is similarly set.

       Next      Switch the Xserver to the next video mode.

       Prev      Switch the Xserver to the previous video mode.

       For some S3-based cards (964 and 968) the following are also available:

       InvertVCLK
                 Change the VCLK invert/non-invert state.

       EarlySC   Change the Early SC state.  This affects screen wrapping.

       BlankDelay1
       BlankDelay2
                 Set the blank delay values.  This affects screen  wrapping.   Acceptable  values
                 are in the range 0-7.  The values may be incremented or decremented with the `+'
                 and `-' buttons, or by pressing the `+' or `-' keys in the text field.

       For S3-864/868 based cards InvertVCLK and BlankDelay1 may be useful.  For S3 Trio32/Trio64
       cards only InvertVCLK is available.  At the moment there are no default settings available
       for these chips in the video mode extension and thus this feature is disabled in xvidtune.
       It  can  be  enabled  by  setting any of the optional S3 commands in the screen section of
       xorg.conf, e.g. using
                 blank_delay "∗" 0

OPTIONS

       xvidtune accepts the standard X Toolkit command line options as well as the following:

       -show     Print the current settings to stdout in xorg.conf "Modeline" format and exit.

       -prev     Switch the Xserver to the previous video mode.

       -next     Switch the Xserver to the next video mode.

       -unlock   Normally, xvidtune will disable the switching of video modes via hot-keys  while
                 it is running.  If for some reason the program did not exit cleanly and they are
                 still disabled, the program can be re-run with this option to re-enable the mode
                 switching key combinations.

BUGS

       X Error handling, i.e. when the server does not allow xvidtune clients to write new modes,
       could be better.
