View Full Version : [ubuntu] kiosk - disable all power saving, etc

August 19th, 2009, 05:44 PM
Have a few kiosk systems set up running Ubuntu, working great. Using gnome desktop, firefox w/ some plugins, etc.

However, the screen keeps blanking. I've created a new user, and set the screen blanking and powersaving (via screensaver applet and power saving applet) to "never blank" and "don't enable screen saver" and "don't blank on power saving" but after 1.5 hours, the screen still blanks.

Anything I can do about this?

Acceptable to The Boss is to never have it blank, or if it must do something then perhaps a screensaver that is nothing but a series of jpeg images (we'll create a "branded" one for our college and update it via cron if needed)
