    I'm not sure where SUSE does it, but typically, this setting can be found in Xorg's config file, which is typically /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

    You'll want something like this in it:
    Code:
    Section "Screen"
      DefaultDepth 16
      SubSection "Display"
        Depth 16
      EndSubsection
    EndSection
    There's a lot of other stuff that should be in that section, too, don't just cut-and-paste.

    Gnome usually provides GUI tools to do this too, but I'm not familiar with what SUSE packages for the desktop.

    After changes to that file, you need to restart X.

    Make sure to back up your existing xorg.conf file first, too, before doing anything!
