Subject description: Changing Screen saver delay for Slacko 5.7
 

One of the things that I noticed in moving from Slacko 5.5 to Slacko 5.7 was no easy way to set the time delay for the screen saver control as the screen would always go blank after 10 min.

I copied an idea from the Screen Save Control scripts from Slacko 5.5

At startup, after the window manager is displayed, I run the following script (from a terminal)


#!/bin/bash

xset_sh_file=/root/Startup/ss-on
time_delay=3000

echo "xset s $time_delay dpms 0 0 $time_delay" > $xset_sh_file
chmod u+x $xset_sh_file

/bin/sh $xset_sh_file

echo "Screen saver time delay set to $time_delay seconds"

# Script End



Now the screen does not go black after 10 min, which is handy if you are watching a video.

Is there any way the Screen Saver Control scripts from Slacko 5.5 could be brought back for Puppy Slacko 5.7.1 (or later releases).

Thanks

rb4linux,

ScreenSaver Control is one of the utilities in PupControl and it integrates nicely with most Pups, including Slacko 5.7.

If interested, you can find it here:

Thanks. I've been looking for a way to change the ScreenSaver timeout.
