screensaver disabling (solved)

Postby 007 on Wed Oct 31, 2012 1:03 pm

Hi, disruptive screensaver at every 15-minute (or 10 minues) interval during youtube or online video watching is giving me a headache. This happens even when screensaver is deactiviated. While watching movies using VLC player/media player would not cause any screensaver problem but online video streaming does.

Question is how to disable screeensaver during online video playback. Thanks in advance.

I use Linux mint 12 kde on hp dv6.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi 007,

I'm assuming your using cinnamon desktop and this may not work if your using a different desktop.

go to
Code: Select all
Menu> System Tools>System Settings>Click on Brightness & Lock> in the middle of the box you see a dropdown menu click on it and select never

That should do it .

good luck

Isn't this cinnamon Mint 13 thing? I don't have that 'brightness & lock' option in the system setting (lm 12 kde). Thanks for quick reply though.

Thanks... it occured to me that it's a power management related as 'brightness...' sort of gave me the hint :D

Thanks for the tip, kc1di. Worked like a charm on cinnamon.
