Remote X screen saver....UGGGGHHH!!
I use Mandrake to remotely connect to an Unix X server (running a specialized program for the factory).
$$ X -query 170.85.211.xxx -depth 8
Works great...nice GUI interface. These computers are on a factory work floor, and need to be on at all times. After about 10 minutes, the screen saver comes on. This is bad. How do I turn the screen saver off in X. Neither KDE or Gnome is installed.
I have tried doing setterm -blank, but apparently that only works for the screensaver at the command prompt. I thought that 'xset' might do the trick, but i can't get the syntax right. Is there a configuration file i can change to turn off the X screen saver (it is just a blank screen, and the monitor does NOT go into standby, so it's not a power management issue)???? Thanks a lot
