fredx181 waited ten minutes so the screensaver seems to be disabled ok. I'll double check later.
Just one other thing if I run the script to disable the screensaver at startup then It will be disabled permanently which wouldn't be a good idea. It would be better to just disable it when needed.
Thanks to yourself and rcrsn51 for sorting me out.

For who is having problems booting with the included kernel in BionicDog, here's older kernel (from Xenial, latest release: linux-image-4.4.0-124-generic).
Just extract the archive in the "casper" directory (see also Readme-kernel-4.4.0-124.txt) and (re)boot Bionicdog.
For a frugal install only.

Got distracted by other, more pressing questions. Good to know the problem is me. It will be awhile before I get to it. I'm leaving for a two week trip on Wednesday. You may have to remind me when I get back.

I'm satisfied with my own testing.

To make vlc run as root, this works (it's a hack of course, and has to be done again if you possibly upgrade vlc in the future):

Code:
sed -i 's/geteuid/getppid/' /usr/bin/vlc

This seem to work pretty well.

Thanks Smile

Subject description: with new save youtube facility
 

Hi Fred,

I 'completed' version 0.0.2 of my cast2chrome program, which will hopefully prove stable. Developed it in XenialDog64 but is architecture independent and will work in Bionic. Latest post and info about ver 0.0.2 in link below (download includes debs and pets):

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=992902#992902

Main change is that this version allows the user to not only play local and internet media (such as youtube) on their chromecast dongle enabled TV but will also (optionally) save the youtube videos as they play.

Thanks wiak,

Added cast2chrome and stream2chromecast to custom repos (Xenial, Bionic, Stretch (I assume it works for Stretch also))

Install cast2chrome with synaptic or from terminal using apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install cast2chrome


Fred
