Using just the current GUI distribution of TCL 2.10, is it possible to turn off all screen saver or screen blanking and any power saving features - without installing any extensions?

I've added:
Code: [Select]
xset s off
to the file
Code: [Select]
/opt/bootlocal.sh
then issued
Code: [Select]
sudo filetool.sh backup
and rebooted.

After some time, the screen still goes blank.  What am I doing wrong?

As xset is a X program, it should be run from .xsession, not bootlocal.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Oops! ok. I added xset s off to /home/tc/.xsession then did a backup and then rebooted. Now it is working correctly. Thanks!

I need help.
1. In which place add xset ??

I enclose printscreen shows content of .xsession file

2. Add only xset s off or xset s off && -dpms

Sorry for probably a stupid question but I have zero experience with linux.
I will be gratefull for reply.
Best regards

Hi Johnson9
You can add  xset s off  to the end of your  .xsession  file.

But thank you very much for reply - I will try again.

It sounds like you didn't run a backup before rebooting.
