Ubuntu Multimedia :: Disable Screensaver When Viewing Full Screen?

Feb 28, 2010

I found a few threads dealing with this subject about a year ago but none seem to have come up with a simple answer. I use vlc and one writer indicated there was an option in vlc to disable the screensaver when in full screen mode. However, I've checked all over vlc and can't find this option.I'm not interested in creating a switch using Terminal to do this manually. I just want to know if disabling the screensaver can be automatic when in full screen mode - like in Windows

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?

General :: How To Disable People From Changing Screensaver Time

Oct 25, 2010

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 :: Monitor Goes To Sleep ... Can't Disable "powersave / Screensaver"

Jun 14, 2010

I have recently switched to Ubuntu (10.04) after running my system on Centos for years. This mostly due to much quicker startup times. I have a software that runs as a public presentation software on a public "bigscreen" so my Ubuntu runs like a "kiosk" pc that's always on. When i switched to Ubuntu everything worked lika a charm besides the fact that the screen falls in to "sleep"/"powersave" or something.

I think that i have tried everything to prevent this. I use Gnome and i have set all the powersavings features to off. Ive tried turning acpi off and i also turn dpms off at login. Nothing seems to kill the "screen powersaving" feature. As a desperate act i tried to use a software called Coffeine, this software should prevent powersavings. I added Coffeine to autostart to activate for 48h, I need the screen to atleast stay on for 24h.. Does anyone have an ide what cuses this? Dont really want to go back to Centos now... My system basicly looks like this:

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..

Ubuntu :: Screensaver Does Not Go Away?

Jun 7, 2010

I have recently upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04, and I have the following problem.My computer is set up to start the screensaver and lock the screen after 5 minutes of inactivity and to use a blank screen after 15. Whenever I come back after some moments of inactivity and move the mouse, the screensaver doesn't go away. Instead of having a box whereinput a password, I'm left with a still image of one frame of the screensaver. I can still input the password and press enter to unlock the screen, but it is a bit annoying nevertheless. Moreover this does not happen if the screen is blank: in that case I see the expected box.

I have Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. Kernel: 2.6.38-8-generic AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250u Processor 750GB HD 8GB RAM.

I'm trying to get the f-spot screensaver working under KDE. I found the f-spot-screensaver executable in usr/lib/gnome-screensaver/gnome-screensaver/f-spot-screensaver, and the executable works just fine under KDE when run from the command line.

I also installed xscreensavers, and they all seem to work just fine, but I can't figure out how to make the f-spot version show up in control panel.

Ubuntu :: Electricsheep Screensaver Not Working?
