    Smile Change console Blank screensaver to run script .sh

    Hello All,

    I am running Ubuntu Server 9.04. I would like to change the screen saver from just a blank screen to running a script. This script will just display some text at random spots on the screen (Eg. Time, Uptime, Internet ip, Lan ip, so on). How can i get it to execute the script instead of just going to a blank screen.

    Cheers much

    Ok, How would i go about finding out how long the machine has been idle for? I could run the script every minute as cronjob and check for idle time, if idle time < set preiod then exit script, If idle time > set period then run rest of script.

    I find it hard to believe that no one has wanted to display "Stats data" instead of just a blank screen.
