When you are watching a movie, many a times, the xscreensaver kicks in after sometime. Is there a way to tell xscreensaver not to kick in when watching a movie ?
Somebody told me and I tried this -
[$] alias mpv mpv=$'mate-session-inhibit --inhibit\n/usr/bin/mpv'
This used to work but now doesn't. have no ideas why. Can somebody explain the above command as well.
This is xscreensaver is stacked up -
5 timeout: 0:05:00 6 cycle: 0:02:00 7 lock: True 8 lockTimeout: 0:05:00 9 passwdTimeout: 0:00:30
So, if I'm reading it right, it seems it says the actual timeout is around 10 mins, see Xscreen saver not locking user for xscreensaver reading.
Update - I am running/using mpv 0.23 on Debian testing/stretch.
