Re: Turn off Display

Code: Select all

bash -c "cinnamon-screensaver-command -l; xset dpms force off;"

I think the simplest way is to just not use a screen saver, just turn off the display instead. Been doing that for years myself.
I tried that but still the display is on. Its a little dim but not off.
How did you do that? Can you guide me with steps.

Turn off Display

Does any one know how I can turn off display when I LOCK my PC rather than going to the screen saver ?
I set a keyboard shortcut to lock the screen and I want to turn off the display when I press that key combination along with locking the system
I am using LM Tessa.

Re: caja slow in mate

Its because I installed mint-meta-mate in cinnamon. Gave it a try.
I have removed MATE and sticking to cinnamon for now.It works well in my system.
Should this topic be considered solved or is there something else..
And thanks for your help.
