My VLC player blocks screensaver while playing, but my monitor still turns off when watching for some time. I did a few searches, but I don't see any good keywords so I'm starting a new thread.

Fedora :: Script To Disable Screensaver Only While Watching Movies

May 30, 2011

i would like to know if there are any good ways to disable and then reenable (the latter is key!) the screensaver so that it doesn't start when i'm watching movies with xine or when i'm watching flash things online like through hulu, videos, or so on. it's relatively simple to have a script run that will turn off the screensaver before starting a certain executable. but what about turning it back on again when the executable closes? and is there any way to detect that flash is running inside a browser window and then disable that temporarily?

Fedora :: Monitor Turns Off After 10 Minutes?

Feb 8, 2011

FC13. In Screensaver, I've made sure no screensaver is selected. In Power Management, PowerDevil is unchecked, profile is set to "performance" and that profile is set to never dim the screen. In fact, just to be sure, I edited all the other unselected profiles to not dim the screen. I've done this as a user, and I've done this as root. My monitor still gets turned off at the 10 minutes mark (I used a stopwatch).

Site search only turned up this thread, but I'm using kde not gnome, and I can't locate a screensaver daemon to kill.

Fedora :: Monitor Becomes Inactive (goes Blank) When Watching Video

Jul 18, 2011

I run LXDE with Openbox as WM on Fedora 15. When I watch videos with Totem or VLC, the monitor doesn't register any activity, and goes into power saving mode (goes blank) after a certain amount of time (about 10-15 mins). How can I prevent this from happening? (I just switched over to Fedora from Arch, using GDM and Openbox. I didn't have this problem on that installation, so it's probably not hardware related.)

Fedora :: Unable To Use The Screensaver In Asus 27" Monitor

Jan 27, 2011

Just upgraded to a super sexy Asus 27" LED monitor. It's awesome, however ther are a few quirks I'm wondering if I just have to live with or if they're fixable. These may not be directly related to the monitor...hence posting here rather than hardware.Specs: Asus 27" LED VE278Q monitor. Nvidia graphics card. Dell 8100 w/ 8GB ram, 64-bit. Fedora 13 running Gnome.

The first quirk is that I have a VNC window open almost all the time and if I leave my cursor on the VNC window, the screensaver won't come on, even if no action has happened on the keyboard or mouse (or in the VNC window). It would be nice if the screensaver worked.

The second problem is that when I'm using the keyboard and/or mouse in the VNC window, apparently, the screensaver doesn't realize the keyboard is being used...and the moment I switch to a different window, up comes the screensaver.

I'm having what I think is a documented hardware issue probably related to the Nvidia driver: at infrequent times, often when I'm using GIMP or other graphics-intensive program, the screen will flicker and/or go completely black for a split second. Distracting as all hell, but not a show stopper. It does not appear to happen when I'm using the web or doing other non-graphic intensive stuff, so I'm guessing this is not the monitor itself, but rather the card or the drivers for it.

Fedora :: Set Totem Player To Open In External Monitor And Not In Built-in Monitor

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Watching Movies In Any Video Player

Jun 15, 2010

I'm just getting started with Ubuntu 64-Bit. Basically, I have Totem Movie Player and VLC Media Player installed and every time I watch a movie in either one of them. If I tab out of them or minimize them, when I bring the media player back up the screen is black. The sound still works perfectly but I can't see the movie and I've tried several media players out and they all do the same thing. Basically I can't multitask or bring up anything else while I watch a movie or I have to restart the player because of the media screen going black.

I'm not sure if my computer specs will help but here they are:
Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 64-Bit
Intel Xeon X3210 2.13GHz Quad
4GB DDR2-800 RAM
ATI Radeon 4870 512MB Videocard

Ubuntu :: Monitor Turns Off After 10-15 Minutes?

Sep 28, 2010

I've read many posts about other people having this issue and I can't seem to find one that is the same problem I am having. I'm totally new to ubuntu and linux as well for that matter, Basically I wanted to give linux a try and started doing some research and liked everything I read about ubuntu. I went to the website and used the wubi (I think that was what it was called) to install ubuntu. Now when I boot my computer it asks me which operating system I would like to use. I navigate to ubuntu and press enter and it starts up with no problems what so ever.

At first I was really surprised with how easy the installation was and how great everything was going, however. After looking around for about 10 minutes, the screen abruptly went black and then my monitor had a small blue box on it with "No input" on it before the light went from blue to orange. I tried hitting every combination of keys I could think of and in the end had to do a hard restart.

Long story short. every time I use ubuntu my monitor shuts off after about 10-20 minutes, regardless of what activity I am doing. I've tried going to /apps/gnome-power-manager/timeout/ to make sure that sleep_display_ac was set to 0 (it was), I've turned off power management using the power manger under preferences. No matter what I have tried, it continues to be a problem.

Fedora :: Crontab To Set A File Playing At A Certain Time?

Jun 6, 2010

I used crontab to set a file playing at a certain time, this works fine; however I want this to run even if no-one is logged in (but the computer is on). I can't get it to do this

Line is: 30 06 * * * env DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/bin/totem /home/adunaic/Playlist.pls

Okay I think the problem was with needing a GUI.

Using this instead works, but i only hear the sound when I log in. I think something needs to be doen to start the audio perhaps?

14 17 * * * export DISPLAY=:0.0 && /usr/bin/mpg123 /home/adunaic/alarm.mp3

Ubuntu :: U11.04 Freezes While Watching Video From Movie Player / Solution For This?

May 10, 2011

I'm new to Ubuntu but I installed Ubuntu 11.04 with no problems. I activated the recommended drivers for my laptop. My laptop is: Acer Aspire 7540G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 video card and AMD Athlon II X2 processor. So the problems comes very very often. I watch videos on fullscreen or I leave them playing in ...... While playin a video the laptop just freezes. Everything stops working. I think this problems comes up may be every 30-40 minutes of watching a movie. I'm not a fan of holding the shut down button for 10 seconds every 40 minutes so I'll be very grateful if someone helps. I've removed Syn to Vblank from the CompizConfig because otherwise Ubuntu runs really slow on my computer and the videos are playing very slow and with very bad quality. When i removed it everything began to run faster but now I've this problem with the freezing... Any ideas ?

Hardware :: Installed Fglrx - Now Monitor Turns Off During Boot?

Sep 20, 2010

I have just installed an ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro (AGP) in my tower, which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I installed the fglrx driver via Jockey, and ran 'aticonfig --initial', with no errors. Now, when I boot, it gets as far as the plymouth splash screen, and the display turns off, and the power light flashes on and off. If I boot in failsafe and use the backed up confguration, it works fine again. The monitor I am using is quite an old one - a 17" CRT with maximum resolution of 1152x864. I do not know the vendor.

Here is the output of xorg.conf


Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0

Ubuntu / Apple :: Sound Stopped Working, IEC958 Light Turns On Instead Of Sound Playing?

Jan 30, 2011

The sound stopped working on my Macbook Pro 1,1. It was working fine before, and I can't think of any changes I made that would make it stop working. I know it's not a hardware problem because the Apple sound plays when I turn on the computer. Everything is unmuted in ALSA Mixer. None of the hardware options in Sound Preferences produce sound. Plugging in headphones or speakers does not solve the problem. I'm using 10.10.One curiosity: Whenever I do something that would normally cause sound to play, the optical audio red light in the headphone jack turns on, but no sound plays.

Ubuntu :: VMware Player Stops Screensaver/lock Engaging?

May 9, 2011

I don't know if anyone else sees this, but I get some odd behaviour when using VMware Player sometimes (Ubuntu 10.10, VMware Player 3.1.2 build-301548, dual monitors).My screen locks after 5 minutes of inactivity. I run a Windows XP VM under VMware player occasionally for certain things and that has a screen-lock time of 15 minutes or so. When running the Windows VM in full-screen on one of my two monitors (not tried it on a lower res), if I place the mouse cursor on the XP VM screen and leave it for > 5 minutes, the screen does not appear to lock. I can come back to the machine and still interact with the Windows XP machine and do what I like. If I move the mouse cursor outside the bounds of the XP VM screen, then the whole screen goes black and presents me with the password prompt to unlock the machine

General :: How To Disable People From Changing Screensaver Time

Running RHEL5 and because of the environment that we are in we have to disable the users being able to change the screen saver. I have tried using the gconf-editor to see if I can disable it but don't know if that is the correct way of doing it. I also looked in /etc/xdg/menus and really don't want to miss with that.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Disable Secondary Monitor Quickly Other Than Loading Up Nvidia-settings And Disabling The Monitor Every Time?

Jun 29, 2010

Currently I have two 1920x1080 screens running in Twinview on my Geforce 275 graphics card. Want I want to do is a quick simple way of disabling my secondary monitor when playing video games or using xbmc to watch movies, etc. I've tried a few applets but they require the xandr function which I think Nvidia doesn't support.

Is there a way to disable this quickly other than loading up nvidia-settings and disabling the monitor everytime. I don't really want to use two seperate x sessions and xinerama due to the fact you can't use compositing.
