I just made a project prototype for client using the BeagleBoard-xM. Nothing special, just a bit of alchemy in C and HTML. However, I run into a very annoying issue.
Whatever I set into the Gnome screen saver configuration, the screen turned black after 10 minutes.
Digging around, I found out that the Gnome session was not the evildoer, but rather the underlying X-windows. So the following set of commands, invoked at Gnome session start-up, set the screen saver off once for ever:
- xset s noblank
- xset s off
- xset -dpms
