i've been trying to edit my xorg.conf file so that x doesn't blank the screen every 10 minutes or so because it really interrupts up any videos and stuff that i watch. i've been able to change the blank timeout and the dpms timeouts using xset, but i really want it done automatically. i've added this to my xorg.conf file:
Option "blank time" "0"
Option "standby time" "0"
Option "suspend time" "0"
Option "off time" "0"
i've also tried the same options without spaces and with captialized letters, etc.(i.e. "BlankTime) but when i startx and do a xset -q, the timeouts aren't set to 0.
I can't think of any other way to do this. running xset at boot up to set the options wont work because xset won't do anything unless x is running. i don't think there are any scripts that run on boot or x startup that would set these timeouts, i'm running slackware.
can anybody help me out with this?
