View Full Version : [kubuntu] Screensaver cause monitor to flicker

October 31st, 2011, 05:08 PM
I'm running Kubuntu 11.04 and I also have the ubuntu-desktop installed. I did an update the other day and now I have an issue with the monitor. I have the screensaver set to come on after five minutes and as expected the screensaver kicks on. After an extended amount of time like 45 minutes the screen goes completely blank. I'm not sure why as I don't have it set anywhere (I opened the gnome-screensaver-properties and completely shut it off). About a half hour later the screen will flicker between black and the Dell logo (I'm using a Dell LCD) like every minute which is irritating.

I think the command "xset s off" fixed it.
