Screensaver keeps coming on when playing movie
« on: September 20, 2010, 06:15:37 am »
Hi.

Just searched on screensaver, but nothing relavent came up.

So I haven't used LinuxMCE (its a test system) for 2-3 weeks but wanted to watch a movie so I did the update, upgrade.

Start watching the movie, and after several minutes, the screen goes blank.  Press return and its back.  Several more minutes and it blanks again.  Seems like a screensaver to me.

Not sure why ?

Regards...Martin

Hmmm, this actually got fixed some time ago, but I noticed it had returned yesterday while watching a movie.  The kubuntu screensaver was kicking on again.  I havn't had a chance to see if the previous changes have been reverted somewhere or if it's something else.

I thought that if you visited the KDE Desktop then you should disable the KDE Screen Saver or it will keep kicking in.

There was a fix put in that disabled the screen saver automatically, preventing the need for manual intervention.
