[SOLVED]Can't turn off screen blanking: bug in /.xinitrc Subject description: Dpup Exprimo 5.X.22.214.171.124
I've been struggling with screen blanking: every 10 minutes screen blanking kicks in when there is no keyboard- of mouse activity during that time. However, I need the screen to be on all the time. I found that xset sets a.o. screen blanking or not. I tried setting xset in a script in /Startup but that didn't work. It only worked from the commandline which is not handy.
Learning along the way I found that when starting a X-session /.xinitrc is called. There I found a bug (I'm pretty new to Puppy and Linux so I guess it's a bug). See 'NOTE':
if [ -f /root/.xset.sh ];then
#this is created by /usr/bin/pupx...
NOTE: /root/.xset.sh is NOT created by /usr/bin/pupx
but /tmp/pupx_screen is. Wrong call.
##Xorg has it's own fontpath settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf...
#if [ "`readlink /usr/bin/X`" != "Xorg" ];then
# #xset fp+ /usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/
# #xset fp+ /usr/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/
# xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/
# xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF/
xset s 600 600 s blank
NOTE: since /root/.xset.sh does not exist, screen blanking
is always activated.
