I've got a good question for you all this time. Earlier today I decided
to have a look at the available screen savers in Ubuntu. There were some
nice ones, but I don't normally use a screen saver, so I set it to
disabled, and set the delay on it to 120 minutes.
Ever since I looked at them now, the damn thing keeps activating after
ten or so minutes of being idle. I used the Screen Saver dialog on the
Preferences menu to look at them the first time. Since then I have also
gone into the Configuration Editor on the Applications, System menu, and
made sure they were disabled there as well.
Still the damn thing keeps popping up every ten minutes. So... I found
the .xml file in the /home/ray/.gconf/apps/gnome-screensaver folder, and
made sure the settings in it were set to false for enabling the screen
saver, and even set the timeout delay to zero to see if that would
prevent it from activating.
Nothing I have done has prevented the screen saver from coming on after
approximately ten minutes of idle time.
How in the hell do I disable the screen saver??? I like to keep an eye
on the screen to see when new mail comes in, and I don't like using a
screen saver at all. Please help me get this thing to shut off.
Thanks, Ray Parrish
