Totem can not turn off screensaver

Postby ChetBaker on Sun Mar 24, 2013 1:22 pm

I'm beginner in LDME, I used ubuntu since 8.04 version. I installed LDME and can not solve simple problem.
In Totem I marked "Turn off screensaver" but nevertheless my screen becomes dark due to screensaver after 5 min
as noted in screensaver config. Is it possible turn off screensaver during video? Thanks in advance.

Hi, this is just my guess. I read another post here today. Someone tried to disable the screensaver in 3 different apps, none worked. You probably have to disable that option in your system settings, so no screensaver at all. I don't think screensavers are much use now anyway. Back in the old CRT days it served a purpose but with modern LCD displays I don't think it matters.
