Title: Weird colors on DSL screen
Post by: Wso on June 16, 2014, 03:23:33 PM
I installed DSL on my thinkbook 385 xd and everything seems to be working except for the colors. All of the colors are messed up and the text is unreadable. I can't figure out how to fix this. I think it may be a problem with the bit-depth, so if anyone knows how to change it please help. Thank you in advance for all replies.

Heres a picture of the screen.

Nevermind, I got it. In case anyone else has the same problem on their thinkbook 385 xd, heres what I did:

1. I pressed f3 when I saw he command line that should appear when you run DSL, mine was grey, I'm not sure what the technical name for this command line is.
2. I typed in dsl xsetup.
3. Follow the instructions on screen, and select the xfbdev option
4. Follow the rest of the on screen instructions, and answer all of the questions
5. You should be good, and to get to that boot up menu (again not sure on the technical name), click on the desktop (not on an app or file) and go to  setup, then x setup.

Sorry for the lack of technical terms in this, hope it helps anyone who has the same problem as I did.
