[Solved] Qt 4.7.4 on mini2440 Linux appears to only show 8bit colors

  • I have cross compiled the Qt 4.7.4 on Ubuntu for embedded Linux running on the mini2440 dev board (ARM). It works well but insists to show distorted colors as if they were 8bit only. The frame buffer test application on the "examples" folder shows that the frame buffer supports 16bit color and the RGB profile of the device is RGB565. I have also tried to compile Qt configured with the -depths 16 parameter which produced the exact same results. Is there anything I can do about it?

  • Ok just a follow up since someone else may find it useful. I reconfigured Qt adding -depths 16,24,32 and it worked.
