Ubuntu :: Disabling Screensaver And Power Management In XFCE?

Jul 22, 2011

Because Ubuntu 11.04 is a bit heavy for the capabilities of my older desktop hardware, I am in the process of switching over to Xubuntu 11.04 going forward. I found the "sleep inhibit applet" very useful when I was using the Gnome DE, and was searching for a replacement in XFCE that doesn't require installing a bunch of Gnome libraries. I found a description of "caffeine" as a utility that seems to be what I'm looking for, but when I added the caffeine ppa to my repositories, and select it for installation in Synaptic, it wants to add a long list of Gnome-related components. Is there any quick way to temporarily disable the screensaver and power management functions in XCFE that doesn't depend on Gnome?

Ubuntu :: Install WINE Screensaver In Gnome-screensaver Possible?

May 19, 2010

There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.

Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..

Fedora :: Install Just XFCE And Not Gnome Or KDE?

Aug 14, 2010

Is there a way to install just XFCE? and not Gnome or KDE? I don't mind Gnome, but I definitely don't like KDE. I have tried installing the XFCE spin to my hard drive, but when I use yum to update packages later, using the default repository, yum wants to install Gnome for some strange reason, and a bunch of other stuff I don't need. Is there a way to prevent this? because really you'd think the XFCE spin would setup yum so Gnome wouldn't be installed, wouldn't you think? I don't really mind Gnome being installed, its just that I never use it, I always use XFCE, so it seems like a waste of disk space to even install it.

well I guess the graphical boot loader uses Gnome, I don't know, but I do know yum installs a bunch of other stuff I don't use after the XFCE spin is installed to the hard drive. How do I prevent that from happening is what I'm asking?

My machine is an HP Pavilion DV6-1350US Notebook Entrainment PC

Fedora :: Incomplete XFCE Install - Windows Don't Have Minimize - Resize And Close Icons On Top Bar

Jul 8, 2011

I installed XFCE on a machine built with the FC 15 LXDE based live CD using yum groupinstall XFCE. I got a usable XFCE session, but after a period of use, some things have gone missing. The windows don't have minimize,resize and close icons on the top bar. The settings selection for "Window Manager Tweaks" doesn't start any program. The programs that are open in the users session are not saved, even though that option is checked. Can this be explained by corruption of a single file somewhere? Or should I re-install XFCE again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Will Not Authenticate After Screensaver Lock Out

Oct 1, 2010

I've just installed 11.1 and so far things seem to work OK. When I left the machine the screen saver kicked in and wouldn't let meback on with my password I chose during installation (and the only password I chose!) Re-booting the machine sorted the problem...until next time! I have now disabled the lock out for the screen saver so things ought to work now, but why did it do this? New with openSuse!

Ubuntu :: New Install 11.04 VERY Slow Resuming From Screensaver?

May 25, 2011

I recently did a fresh install of 11.04 (previously had 9.10) Everything works fine and dandy (I didn't have to do much tweaking at all to this version!!!) Except: When my computer resumes from the screensaver (GL text, set to display time) it takes nearly a minute for my DE to show up. When it finally does show up it takes another minute or more for the computer to run at normal "speed". A lot of lag and unresponsive mouse etc. After a few minutes the computer runs fine...I am not so linux savvy, what I know I have gleaned from forums such as this one. Is there something that 11.04 runs as default that I need to shut off to stop my slow resume problem?

I'm running Fedora 12 and the last couple days I have noticed my screensaver will not start anymore. I did a yum update a few days ago don't know if there is a connection between the two. I've just started to Google the topic. Found different culprits ranging from dbus problems to buggy code.

Debian Installation :: How To Install Xfce After Install Is Complete From USB

May 7, 2015

When I boot into Debian 8, I pull up a terminal and as root enter "apt-get install xfce4"... It then tries to install but asks for the install DVD. When I insert the USB it will not install from it. It doesn't even acknowledge that it was inserted. It is only looking for a DVD drive. How can I make it pull the files from the usb installer stick?

Fedora :: Screensaver Ignoring Configured Settings?

Dec 22, 2010

I am using F14 installed from DVD, updated to the latest bugfixes for all packages; I also have the nvidia proprietary drivers installed.I have configured my gnome-screensaver using gnome-screensaver-preferences to have a delay of one hour before it blanks the screen. However, no matter the settings I choose (even testing with only a 1 minute delay) the screensaver always kicks in at the 10 minute mark. This persists no matter the graphics driver I use.The only means by which I can stop the screen from locking while watching videos online is to kill the gnome-screensaver daemon.What information should I provide to assist in determining why this is happening? It's very aggravating. I'll include my current xorg.conf in the event that it may help.

Fedora :: Start And Stop Script With Screensaver

May 26, 2009

I would like to start and stop rtorrent based on my screensaver. I used to do this awhile ago with ubuntu and still have my script. However now I am using Fedora with KDE and the script no longer seems to work.

my $cmd = "dbus-monitor --session "type='signal',interface='org.gnome.ScreenSaver',member='SessionIdleChanged'"";
open (IN, "$cmd |");
while (<IN>) {
if (m/^s+boolean true/) {
#when screensaver activates, run the following commands
system("touch /home/asoukenka/rtorrenthasstarted");
} elsif (m/^s+boolean false/) {
#when screensaver deactivates, run the following commands
#system("kill `pgrep rtorrent`");
system("touch /home/asoukenka/rtorrenthasbeenkilled"); } }

Fedora :: Create Gnome Screensaver From Video File

Feb 28, 2009

I was wondering how to create a GNOME screensaver from a video file? I don't really care what video format the screensaver creator supports because I can always transcode the video with ffmpeg or mencoder. I also, don't care if the creator uses proprietary formats such as mpeg, mpeg4, avi, etc. I do however want the program to create an installable screensaver.

Fedora :: Screensaver Freezes To Hard Reboot Using 13 And Repo KDE?

Aug 29, 2010

when I leave the computer and xscreensaver - which I have a link to in my .kde/Autostart directory - starts up, all hell breaks loose. I don't know if my desktop compositing is doing this (I have an ATI Radeon x1200 card with stable Mesa GL, seems to run compiz just fine) or if one of the individual screensavers is b0rked but it always seems to end with me coming back to a still-life shot of my computer screen with a BRIGHT BLUE translucent stripe across the top. Alt-SysRq-K doesn't do anything from that point on, Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't do anything and I have to hit the power button. I don't have multiple screensaver programs running at once, I've already disabled the native KDE saver. I never had this problem with GNOME, but couldn't enable compositing on it either.

FYI for anyone that feels the need to ask, I use the "radeon" driver and my glxinfo is thus:


bash-4.1$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes

Fedora :: Screensaver/power Management Results In Logout?

Dec 22, 2010

I have searched for a solution to this issue (it's difficult to come up with a minimum number of search terms) and have found at least one person reporting it, but the solution is "check the xorg logfile" - which is entirely too vague, since I don't know what I'm looking for in the file. Here's the issue: The screensaver and/or power management appears to initiate a logout when I try to awaken the computer, whether the screensaver is still functioning or the screen has been turned off. Wither way, I jiggle the mouse, and it appears there is a crash (black screen with spinning mouse circle) resulting in a new login screen, which is entirely disruptive if I have software running, such as recording an audio stream with Audacity.

I'm using KDE with an OpenGL screensaver (antinspect) set to engage after 10 minutes. As for power settings, I am "letting powerdevil manage screen power saving." On the screen tab I have checked "Dim display when idle for more than [10] minutes." I have enabled display power management - standby after 20 minutes and power off after 30 minutes. (There are way too many options under KDE now, and I don't find an explanation of what the various "Profile Management" options do and what the tabs for "Actions" and "CPU and System" do differently from the "Screen" tab. I have an ATI 4650 video adapter. I'm not using a proprietary driver, since I've not been able to determine that there is one that will work with Fedora 14 (or any other Fedora, for that matter). The machine is a recent AMD (dual core 6000+) with 4Gb of memory.

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 :: 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?

The mouse pointer comes back up on the screen, but the desktop doesn't appear or a box to enter a password. I try to reboot X and get an error that X can't be started and it drops me to a prompt. I reboot from the command line and then I get the filesystem error and have to wait 2 hours while it scans.
