MC 9 Screen blank / screen saver
« on: May 14, 2018, 11:27:07 PM »
Hi all,

Sorry if this sounds like a realy stupid question.

I was wondering how I set MC to blank the screen after x minutes of no keyboard input ?

Thanks :)
Live long and prosper.

See man setterm
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

See man setterm

Feed back much appreciated curaga.

My results with setterm experiments from the command line

Code: [Select]
$ setterm
-sh: setterm: not found

Perhaps its a part of a tcz package.

I'll have to learn how to use appbrowser to search the tcz's for it.
Live long and prosper.
