tty graphics mode


Hi,

In my linux based embedded system, tty1 is currently active. Its mode is Graphics. I wrote a small test application, which opens tty1 and write escape sequence to it. The escape sequence sets the blanking interval.

If the tty1 is in text mode, then things are working fine, but not in graphics mode.

Can anyone help me out in this ?

I doubt I can. But if your tty is not in text mode I don't think that escape sequences will work.

Thanks for your reply.

Is there any other way to set the blanking interval using 'C' functions.
