Fedora :: FC15 Gnome 3 - How To Stop Screen From Blanking

Sep 2, 2011

How do I stop the display from turning off? In 'System Settings/Screen', I can only choose from a preset range of minutes - there is no option to disable it. Very annoying when watching a 90 minute movie, for instance. At least under FC14 I had the disable option. I tried unchecking Power Manager in gnome-session-properties, but that disabled the system from suspending when the laptop lid is closed and might have other ramifications as well. I tried disabling Screensaver in gnome-session-properties, but 'System Settings/Screen' still showed up with the same options, so it appears to be unrelated. Anyway, I suspect this is a power management issue, not a screensaver issue.

Fedora :: FC15 Stop Gnome From Turning Screen Off?

Jun 5, 2011

Under Gnome2 you were able to stop the OS from turning off the screen by selecting "never" as the time to turn off the display when the computer was idle. This was found under the screensaver configuration.The screen tool for Gnome3 does not offer "never" as an option. Does anyone know how to stop Fedora 15/Gnome 3 from turning off the display?

Ubuntu :: How To Stop Blanking The Screen

Jan 15, 2011

I have both Computer and Display set to NEVER SLEEP in power management. yet after about five minutes of inactivity, Ubuntu always blanks out the screen (i.e., just a black monitor screen but the monitor power light is still on).How do I stop this? I want to continue to see what is on my desktop--I do not want the screen to blank out ever.

CentOS 5 :: Stop Screen Blanking And Power Save?

Aug 25, 2009

I'm not sure this belongs in this forum as opposed to the hardware forum, but I do not beleive this is a hardware issue.I want to stop the scrren from blanking and going to power save. I'm running 5.3_x86-64 and I'm using the nVidia drivers direct from nVidia called NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-96.43.13-pkg2.run.

So far, I'm added DPMS off in /etc/xorg.conf, removed all the screensaver packages and all the power management packagesbut the screen is still going blank after a time of inactivity.What else do I need to do? I can not allow the screen to go blank, there should be no screensaver or power management and the machine should stay in a completely awake and ready-to-use state at all times.

Fedora :: Error Gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 When Choose A Minimal Install Then Add ONLY The Defaults Of The "GNOME Desktop" Package

May 3, 2011

I noticed that in Fedora 15 Beta when you choose a minimal install then add ONLY the defaults of the "GNOME Desktop" package, you will get this error: gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 has a required package:


When I look for gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 it is not on any installation menu list. I prefer gnome, but installed KDE and that worked. Any ideas of getting gnome to work?

Fedora :: FC15 Gnome 3 Missing Window Selector?

Jun 12, 2011

When I minimise windows, or have several open, I've lost the window selector at the bottom to be able to flip between them. I can go to "activities" and then select them there, or I can ctl-tab to them but I used to like the window selector at the bottom. Anybody located the missing window selector ?

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Start X Or Gnome After Upgrade To FC15

Jun 21, 2011

I upgraded Sunday evening from FC14 to FC15 using the yum preupgrade method. Services such as httpd, vsftpd, sshd, named and even the VNC server are all running. I can connect via VNC client and get a downgraded gnome desktop, but from the console, I cannot start X or gnome desktop.I have searched many threads over the last day+ and found many references to problems with nVidia drivers - and I have a nVidia adapter. but I am not sure what is next to do and need a lead.

Fedora :: Sound Settings Not Saved (FC15 & Gnome Shell)

Jun 23, 2011

Not sure if others have noticed this. When I go into sound settings, click the output tab, select the sound device I want to edit and change the bass levels etc, close the window and go back in all the settings are reset to default and no changes are saved.

If I leave the window open and make the changes they are reflected in VLC for example, but if I close the window it again resets to defaults and my Bass is back at Maximum....

Is this a BUG I should report or is there something I can download to get this configured elsewhere or to fix this issue? I seem to recall something similar in Fedora 14 that was fixed, but I cant remember how I did it now

Fedora :: Xscreensave Won't Lock Screen In FC15

Aug 5, 2011

I'm running Gnome on Fedora 15 (currently in failback mode). I've installed the Fedora provided xscreensaver RPMs and ensured that xscreensaver is running when I login (not gnome-screensaver). The problem is, when I try to lock my screen using one of the multiple "lock screen" icons nothing happens. The following line does appear in my ~/.xsession-errors file when the icon is clicked.

** (gnome-panel:3548): WARNING **: Could not ask screensaver to lock: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnkn own: The name org.gnome.ScreenSaver was not provided by any .service files

This line appears regardless of whether or not the gnome-screensaver RPM is installed. I've tried with both gnome-screensaver installed and without it installed with the same result.

Running "xscreensaver-command -lock" from the command line does successfully lock the screen.

Also, the screen lock icons do work when gnome-screensaver is installed and is set as the default screensaver. Anyway, I just upgrade to Fedora 15 recently (I've used all previous version of Fedora) and this is the first time I've run into this problem.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Disable Xorg Screen Blanking

Feb 11, 2011

The X server in Debian seems to have a "funny" habit to suddenly start blanking the screen if I don't touch the mouse or the keyboard for a while, although I've used the xset command (xset -dpms s off) in my ~/.xinitrc to tell Xorg specifically NOT to blank the screen. I know how to disable screen blanking in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but I'd rather not have the xorg.conf file at all.

So, I'd be interested to hear your suggestions about how to disable the Xorg screen blanking without using the xset command or the xorg.conf file. Is there some other file in /etc/X11/ that I could tweak to disable this highly annoying desire of Xorg to insist on blanking my screen after a bit of idle time?

Ubuntu :: Dual Monitor (Random Screen Blanking)

Feb 23, 2011

I recently upgraded my 10.04 installation to 10.10 and ever since my dual monitor set-up has been behaving oddly - my secondary monitor randomly goes black for a second and then comes back as normal. I've tried to reproduce it with no luck and it isn't something I experienced with previous installations so wondered whether it's a known problem with 10.10? NVidia Quadro NVS 290

General :: Adding Screen Blanking Timeout For Xvesa

Jan 14, 2010

Aboard TinyCore 2.7 and opting to run without Xorg. I'm needing either a pointer or syntax example. Seems my monitor supports dpms after executing a quick one-two with:

$ xset s blank
$ xset s 150

Yet I'm unsure how it would look placed in Tinys .xsession:

Xvesa -br -screen 1024x768x32 -shadow -mouse /dev/input/mice,5 -nolisten tcp -I >/dev/null 2>&1 &
"$DESKTOP" 2>/tmp/wm_errors &
export WM_PID=$!

if [ -n "$BACKGROUND" ]; then

General :: Mint 9 KDE Installed - Screen Splashing / Blanking

Sep 23, 2010

I recently installed Mint 9 using/trying KDE, which I found very intuitive and feature-rich. However, a snag soon appeared. The screen started to blank every few seconds or minute. This is pretty annoying. I have so far tried every tried-and-tested means available, exhaustively, to no avail. Even their website has this as a known issue, yet the solution (i.e. configuring the screen resolution) doesn't seem to work for me.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Dell Optiplex 960 Screen Blanking ?

Sep 8, 2010

I've just installed 12 new Dell Optiplex 960 computers with Dell 2009W monitors. They are identical hardware and OS installs. Some of them are exhibiting a weird problem with their screens: They boot up and run just fine, but then the monitor goes black for 2 or 3 seconds, and comes back, with the small DVI icon popping up in the upper left corner to show which video connection is active. This repeats at random intervals continously; sometimes just a few seconds between, and sometimes many minutes.

The problem initially happened on just one machine so I had Dell swap the motherboard thinking it was a hardware issue. That did not fix it. Soon after that, I got reports from several users of the same problem on other of the new machines.

I've done a very basic install of CentOS 5.5, skipping all of my local configuration management stuff, and it still happens. Then I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and over the last few hours the machine has been rock solid. No video issues at all.

Here is the output of lspci:

General :: Change System Console Screen Blanking Behavior?

Jun 14, 2010

How do I change the screen blanking behavior on Linux virtual terminals?

For example, if I switch to a VT from X, login, and leave the system alone for 5 minutes or so, the screen will blank like a screensaver. It comes back with any keypress, like a screensaver.

Mostly I just want to change the timeout, but I'm also interested in other settings.

If it helps, one of my systems is running Ubuntu 10.04 with the stock graphics drivers. fbset shows the console using the radeondrmfb framebuffer device.
