Ubuntu :: Can't Disable Screen Saver

Jun 30, 2010

I have been having a problem with every Ubuntu version I have used where the screen blanks automatically after a few minutes when the computer is left alone.I have set all the settings in the system BIOS and power management settings to disable screen saving features. The screen saver options are set to the following: Pictures Folder, Idle after 2 hours, Activate when Idle unchecked.Require password is checked.

These are my settings, but in about 10 minutes of not being touched, each computer goes to a blank screen and I have to use my password to get back to the desktop.I originally installed Ubuntu 8.04.3 on my desktop, and I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on one of my laptop computers. I have sense upgraded the desktop to 9.10 and then to 10.04.I updated the first laptop to 10.04 and freshly installed 10.04 onto another laptop.I am having this same problem on all three computers and had the problem on each computer from the beginning.I ran update manager today about an hour ago and have not tested this problem, but I expect it is still there. I created a document with nothing but the time and left it on the laptop. I will see how long it takes for the screen blanker to activate.I searched the forum and found two unrelated problems, one of which was the opposite, someone who could not get the screen saver to activate.

Software :: Disable Screen-saver ?

May 17, 2010

I am using "Puredyne" distro, that is Ubuntu. After some time I've been not typing any key the screen-saver starts, but it is malfunctioning because it gradually blanks the screen and does not allow me to take control of the system again. So I ask you how to disable this screen-saver or enable another one that works.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Obnoxious Bar In Smplayer - Full Screen Isn't Full Screen And There Are Black Edges On Both Sides Of The Screen

Jan 25, 2011

This obnoxious bar has just appeared in Smplayer at the top of the screen. It stays there even when I go full screen. Now full screen isn't full screen and there are black edges on both sides of the screen. I have not be able to figure out how to hide it. I do not need or want this onscreen display. How can I configure Smplayer to make this go away? How can I get my 16:9 full screen aspect ratio back? I have done nothing to mplayer or smplayer as far as editing any or changing any configuration files. I tried several videos and it displays on all of them. It was not there last time I used Smplayer.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Jerky When Screen Saver Comes On?

Jan 17, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 9.10. I have an Nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX 400 video card. When I changed my screensaver to something other than blank screen, it screws up my graphics. The Screensaver looks fine in the preview window, but if I click the Preview button (full screen), my screen becomes jerky and slow. My screen savers worked fine in 8.04. I recently upgraded and I began having this problem.

OpenSUSE :: Diabling Screen Saver While Streaming Video

Jun 29, 2011

I'm wondering if there is a method for leaving the screen saver set to appear after, say 4 minutes, but to NOT have the screen saver activate during a streamed video. For example, any time I wish to stream a video through Firefox, I must open screen saver settings and deactivate. I was wondering if there is some way to maybe lower the priority for the screen saver below Firefox or Flash player, etc. Or if there is another work-around that is simpler than monkeying with the settings every time.

I haven't noticed this problem when using media players to mount local files, such as vlc. I'm running 64-bit KDE 4.6.4 Tumbleweed (from 11.4), FIrefox 4.0.1, Linux x86_64. Last 'zypper dup' was done yesterday, 6/28. Sorry if I forgot any important info.

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

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Disable Flash Plugin Full Screen Warning?

Sep 27, 2010

We should find a way to patch Flash plugin to inhibit the display of the warning "Press ESC to exit full screen mode". On Windows it's possible to perform the trick perfectly by patching the DLL using a Hex editor, but on Linux? I'm unable to correctly alter the binary /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so .

Software :: Using Windows Screen Savers - Using .scr Screen Saver Files

Dec 22, 2008

I've been a Linux user for years but just recently I decided to take the plunge and use Ubuntu Linux as my primary OS (with Windows on the side for any games that don't run well in CrossOver Games).

Anyway, one thing I was curious about was whether or not I could get some of my Windows screen savers to work on Linux. Specifically I had been using "Blue Screen", a cute little ss made by SysInternals that emulates various versions of Windows BSODs.

The file comes as a .scr file (like all Windows screen savers). I wanted to know if there was any program that converted .scr files into Linux compatable screen savers. If not, that's still OK as I've now been rocking "Electric Sheep"!

I'm running Ubuntu Linux 8.10 on a HP DV9000 with an 1.7GHz Intel Centrino Duo processor, 2GB ram, and an nVidia GeForce Go 7600 graphics card.

Ubuntu :: Flash Video With Full Screen Freezing

May 19, 2011

This bug is strange because it doesn't happen for me in Ubuntu (Gnome). Whenever I try to watch a Flash video in full screen, the picture always freezes after a few seconds of play, and the only way for me to unfreeze it is to get out of full screen using the escape key. I can put it back into full screen, but it always just freezes up again after a few seconds.

I figured out a strange work around for it though, but it's certainly not ideal. I figured out that if I get the time pop-up (see attachment to see what I mean) to stay up, it doesn't freeze. This happens in both Firefox and Chrome. I was going to try this in Rekonq, but I can't seem to get Flash working in Rekonq.

Slackware :: KDE 4.4.5 - No Lock Screen - No Screen Saver

Aug 23, 2010

What happens is that I resorted to deleting my .kde directory after my kid destroyed my profile where title bar, menu, konsole get broken. After deleting, I login again thus regenerating the .kde directory. To avoid my kid from messing my desktop, I tried to lock it. It does not lock.

It just need a KDE full restart perhaps since when I login the other day, it now works.

I'm updated to Slackware current for almost a month already and have not played a lot on KDE desktop (busy programming stuff).

However, on day I tried to lock the desktop in KDE to avoid the kid from destroying my cool desktop setting, but it didn't lock. Cool, so I tried screen saver and add an option to lock the screen.

When I test screen saver, it displays. But when I wait for 1 minute(I set it that way), it doesn't fire up. Not even after 15 minutes which I think the default.

It usually work before (several months ago) using the lower version of KDE. It is just last Saturday that I noticed it.

I tried to dig the profile management but I could not find anything relevant there.

Ubuntu :: CompizConfig Full Screen Video Desktop Switch

Oct 10, 2010

I saw a compizconfig video on ....., I forgot what it was, but I saw that they were running a video full screen and switched desktops or work areas and when they went back the video was still full screen.

Right now if I do a video full screen and switch to another desktop and come back to the video one, it is back to the window size before full screened.

How can I accomplish for my video to remain full screen even if i switch desktops?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lines In Full Screen Video Playback?

May 2, 2011

I really don't know where I should ask this question. When I'm watching a video in full screen (ex, avi or h264 file) I am seeing random horizontal bars where there is action on the video like where a head is turning.When the motion is slow I am less likely to see these lines. Faster the motion, lots of lines or shaky motion. I was using my onboard Geforce 6150 GPU but thought it was because it was underpowered. I then bought a GT220 thinking that it was the problem. It is still but less frequent. Using the built in player, VLC... I don't know where to look, what to search for...There is my setup:

AMD Athlon II x2 255
nvidia GT220 512mb

Fedora :: Video - Cannot Play Full Screen Flash

Jan 20, 2010

I installed fedora 12 on my system but had issues with the ATI card I had at the time which I could not solve. So, I bought a Geforce 6200 hoping that would help, but I am still getting issues. Firstly, I cannot play full screen Flash. I know this has been asked before but all of the solutions I have tried have failed. Also, I would like to know if it is possible to play AVI files, as I d/l a few.

If I cannot get these two issues sorted it will be back to the dreaded Mic...... As I said, I am a complete novice here, I tried to enable desktop effects, and a message came up saying I only had 2D support, so I am guessing a driver problem? I have not installed any new drivers, but did try to get from nvidia, that I could not get to install - it was a .run file.

I have just followed the four point installation guide that I found on here, and now when the PC boots I have a slow moving blue bar across the the bottom of the screen with 'Fedora 12' next to it, and the graphics are now totally shot, looking like something from windows 3.1!
