As a student in South Asian languages, culture and history, specialising in comparative cultures and cognitive science, I take special interest in the influence of cultural paradigms in the perception and interaction with the world in terms of development. I am also a polyglot with a strong passion for learning languages, including programming languages such as Python. Also I am firm supporter of unix and free software.

comment How to create a “Turn Off Screen” Action?
For now I made a small executable bash script using the command line above, called screen-off which I moved to my /usr/bin. It shows now as an application rather as an action. I would still like to know where those "actions" are defined and fix this properly.

It seems the command line to turn off screen is xset dpms force off. See this link.

It's a start. I suspect there must be somewhere some "action" launcher? Much like there are application launchers?
