Linux XFCE Desktop – Screensaver deactivation

Unlike GNOME or Cinemon, there seems not to be a all-in-one point-and-click solution for XFCE. Multiple hacks are described around the net, but this worked in my case – a BeagleBoard displaying showcases.

DEBIAN 8.1.1, XFCE Desktop Environment:


Deactivate the settings via the menu: Settings > Screensaver


Edit /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

@lxpanel --profile LXDE
@pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE
@xscreensaver -no-splash

becomes this:

@lxpanel --profile LXDE
@pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE
# @xscreensaver -no-splash
@xset s noblank
@xset s off
@xset -dpms
