I have some iei panels pc that keep, after a minute or so, blacking the screen. The thing is that I want the screensaver to launch but I don't want it to black the screen.
X is launched by nodm, and X is configured with dpms and screen saver disabled so :
xxx@xxx-001:~$ xset -q Keyboard Control: auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000000 XKB indicators: 00: Caps Lock: off 01: Num Lock: off 02: Scroll Lock: off 03: Compose: off 04: Kana: off 05: Sleep: off 06: Suspend: off 07: Mute: off 08: Misc: off 09: Mail: off 10: Charging: off 11: Shift Lock: off 12: Group 2: off 13: Mouse Keys: off auto repeat delay: 660 repeat rate: 25 auto repeating keys: 00ffffffdffffbbf fadfffefffedffff 9fffffffffffffff fff7ffffffffffff bell percent: 50 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100 Pointer Control: acceleration: 2/1 threshold: 4 Screen Saver: prefer blanking: yes allow exposures: yes timeout: 0 cycle: 0 Colors: default colormap: 0x20 BlackPixel: 0 WhitePixel: 16777215 Font Path: /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc,built-ins DPMS (Energy Star): Standby: 7200 Suspend: 7200 Off: 14400 DPMS is Disabled
I also disabled consoleblank through grub's kernel option:
xxx@xxx-001:~$ cat /sys/module/kernel/parameters/consoleblank 0
I tried a few other things around setterm/issue, even kms and I also tried a few other kernel
But nothing seems to work, it keeps blanking.
Does anyone see a lead I should look into?
P.S.: I'm aware of how to stop the screen from blanking / blacking out? and a few other ones
Edit : My problem is coming from xscreensaver, if I disable it the monitor behave as expected. But I use the same .xscreensaver on other hosts and they behave properly, they use the same kernel and same version of X11
