Screen turns off...

Fri Nov 11, 2011 3:29 pm
Hi,

hope this is the right place form my question... (kind of difficult to know whats what here - for me that is).

Hava a little problem with seting up KDE after the frist installation. I don't want for my screen to be turned off when my computer is idle. Tried the screen saver and power managment options. Nothing helped. It still turns off after ~10 minutes.

Suggestions?...

per the last post in this thread http://forums.fedoraforum.org/archive/i ... 42247.html and http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ubuntu ... post853070
xset -dpms s noblank

xset = user preference utility for X
-dpms = Energy Star features off
s noblank = don't blank screensaver

I got this far somehow.... problem is can't make it stick. Each time I reboot, settings go back to deafault. Although I use
Code: Select all
 xset s 0 0
The dpms feature is already disabled. Wanted to add that line to /etc/rc.local, but it's not working for some reason. I mean the setting is still default, have to do it manually... :(

I think you need to execute the command within your KDE session (not during the boot process), try putting it in an executable shell script and add the script to the autostart moudule in systemsettings
