Greetings all;
I am running an app that gets messed up if the screen blanker
kicks in, so I used xset to shut off dpms. Has no effect.  So
how do I shut the screen blanker down for the jobs duration?

Since we seem to be troubleshooting, what is the output of

  $ xset q

gene@coyote:/media$ xset q

But if I repeat that query half san hour later, something has
re-enabled dpms.  Murphy?

If the system insists on setting dpms, can you change those three
numbers with   dpms 1 2 3   only using some *very* large numbers.

(DE stuff is beyond me.)


I just gave that a try, with 3000 6000 and 9000

How did that go?

But ISTR doing that once before, quite a ways up the log and having
it reset to 450 300 600 in a half hour.

I'll track it and see in the night when I'm up to water the daisys.

How were the daisies holding up?
