Re: [vox-tech] reading bitmaps in XLib

The function XReadBitmapFile() almost certainly reads X bitmap files (.xbm).. which are different than Windows bitmap files (.bmp). I don't know precisely how to read windows bitmaps, but I think that the GD image library is a good place to start looking.

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to display a bitmap(.bmp) on the screen using xlib. I am using
XReadBitmapFile to load the bitmap but it is giving me a BitmapFileInvalid
on return. The bitmap seems not to be corrupted and I have tried other
bitmaps however I get the same problem. I am clueless as to why this is. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
