Imifos Versus the BeagleBoard's ScreenSaver

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
