Re: Where can I find a list of all colors


 I know about those. I am writing an app where a user can choose 
colors to use in plots, like "red", "green", ..... What I want is to 
be able to show the user the list of colors they can use. Now, I can 
always show the rgb.txt file. But what happens when a color is not 
available because of crappy graphics card for instance or because they 
use 16 bit instead of 32 bits.....

colour value? If so, look in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb.txt (that's where it 
is in Debian at least - slocate rgb.txt if it's not there :)
