Disabling screensaver temporarily

Disabling screensaver temporarily

Post by Detlev Offenbac » Thu, 28 Jun 2001 03:28:07

Hi all,

how can I disable the screensaver temporarily (e.g. in a shell script) for
watching TV or a DVD under KDE 2.1.2 without the screensaver locking the
screen. I have tried the command

"dcop kdesktop KScreensaverIface enable false"

but it does not work. I get the error message "no such function". Please

Is there documentation of the supplied interface available?

1. disabling screensaver/DPMS temporarily

Is it possible to disable screensaver and or the DPMS temporarily in KDE?
Preferably by a short command so I could incorporate it in a startup script
when I want to watch TV or a divx movie and the like.

And does anyone know of a TV application for KDE for cards supported by
GATOS? xatitv is ugly, and gatitv not much better, aside from the fact that
it's GNOME :-)
