We are using xtiff program (from contrib of Sam Leffler's software on TIFF v3.3 ) to view TIFF images.For some images it is displaying the contents without any problems (They happen to be of Bits/Sample = 1) but for the other we are not able to view the image (They are of Bits/Sample = 8) instead we are getting the following error.

xtiff: 24-bit DirectColor visual not available

We would be grateful to you if you can help us out of this problem.

Forget xtiff, use XV instead - it should be able to view/read/save most file formats, and does a very good job on managing displays and colors.

libtiff:
        sgi.com:/graphics/tiff/v3.3beta021.src.tar.gz

-rw-r--r--   1 2273     10        255806 Sep 29 17:04 v3.3beta021.src.tar.gz

XV:

A version (latest?) of libtiff and libjpeg is included in XV.
