On leopard board, for video display we have to use "fbset -disable" command. I think we disable OSD by this command. How can I use OSD again? After video I want to see any bitmap on OSD.
Morteza has already done what you need at designsomething.org/.../2829.aspx
It's for the fonts... you may like work for images!
Hi Mehmet,I was looking for a way to enable frame buffer after we disable it by "fbset -disable"
I found these, I thought they might come in handy...
Instead of fbset -disable it is better to resize the framebuffer, so we can use it later on.
We can resize the framebuffer to any size e.g. 320x240 by: fbset -xres 320 -yres 240
When you resize the framebuffer, you can still use gstreamer, because the video windows is visible under FB. (Try a gst-launch command)
You can completely hide the FB by: fbset -xres 1 which makes the frame buffer 1 pixel in width. (Zero is not acceptable)
You can restore FB again by resizing it back to the normal size: fbset -xres 720 -yres 480
It is a very good feature, and I am going to use it for a GUI on my leopard board.
I will document my steps if I succeed.
I am preparing my board for a presentation and I have also changed my PSplash picture (Sorry RidgeRun!)
As you can see in this photo, I have resized the FrameBuffer and I am playing a pipeline in the video window behind FB0!
