|Code Sample |
|xset s off|
xset s off
"noblank" should be used as part of "xset s".
Having "xset s off" twice is unnecessary, and I'm not sure the two s options used here are compatible. "off" turns off screen blanking entirely, while "noblank" displays a pattern, if your hardware supports it. If "off" is used, I assume no blanking at all will occur.
| s The s option lets you set the screen saver parameters. This option|
accepts up to two numerical parameters, a 'blank/noblank' flag, an
'expose/noexpose' flag, an 'on/off' flag, an 'activate/reset' flag,
or the 'default' flag. If no parameters or the 'default' flag is
used, the system will be set to its default screen saver character
istics. The 'on/off' flags simply turn the screen saver functions
on or off. The 'activate' flag forces activation of screen saver
even if the screen saver had been turned off. The 'reset' flag
forces deactivation of screen saver if it is active. The 'blank'
flag sets the preference to blank the video (if the hardware can do
so) rather than display a background pattern, while 'noblank' sets
the preference to display a pattern rather than blank the video.
The 'expose' flag sets the preference to allow window exposures (the
server can freely discard window contents), while 'noexpose' sets
the preference to disable screen saver unless the server can regen
erate the screens without causing exposure events. The length and
period parameters for the screen saver function determines how long
the server must be inactive for screen saving to activate, and the
period to change the background pattern to avoid burn in. The argu
ments are specified in seconds. If only one numerical parameter is
given, it will be used for the length.
There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with your torsmo command. Could you post the error?
