Konsole blank out


How do you turn off the konsole blanking out? I know there was a thread on it related to not being able to get it back up with a nVidia graphics card, but it seems to be rather hard to find in the search. Can we go over again how to lengthen or turn off the konsole's habit of blanking out after awhile?
Side discussion: How do I change the coloring of konsole? ...like a white background and dark red letters or something...

You can put in at the end of /etc/profile so it will be run when you log in

Why do some of my commands like ls and vi change my konsole colors, and how do I make 'em quit? Do I need to go between "programs" and change the colors somehow?

The console uses the ansi escape sequences. usualy something like esc[nn to change the colours etc. They also work in msdos if you put device=ansi.sys in config.sys. An old dos manual should have them. ls has options for showing diferent types of files in diferent colours.
Hope this puts you in the right direction. Just to let you know I am away on holiday for a week.

Hope you have fun on your holiday. What I'm wanting is to figure out how to make like ls and vi display using my konsole colors as a default (maybe have folders as the same foreground color, but my default background color which is now white). Does regular vi use the konsole schema? I have VI Improved on my Mandrake system.

I dont use vi not very fond of it. I use joe. For ls put

alias ls="ls --color=auto -h"

In your /etc/profile

man ls should tell you more

What's wrong with VI? It's simple to use to me, and there isn't much screen clutter. I just got Mandrake 7.2 on my laptop and it's a lot diferent from 9.

I've never used WordStar, but I have used WordPerfect. So far, in my opinion (and that's all that counts here ) indicates that vi is the best text editor I've used.
