Also have xscreensaver-demo installed by default. But this can only be initiated from the GUI. Don't want these.
My need is to have a screensaver and LED of screen "powered off" run iteratively when required without further ado.
Don't want xlock through xautolock, if the unlock a password every time. Unlike this one: How to run custom script as screensaver in Openbox?
Within a script file, sssvr.sh, something like the following:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash echo "Usage: ./ssvr.sh ssvr.sh" done=0 i=0 while true do expr $(( i = i + 1 )) read -p "To stop press n and Enter : " -t 2 INPOOT xset dpms force off kill -19 `pidof $1` sleep 12 xset dpms force off kill -18 `pidof $1` sleep 2 if [ "$INPOOT" = "n" ]; then echo "Ending..." echo exit 0 fi done
But is it possible to have the above-mentioned script file run through xautolock. Now that is the pertinent question.
Any suggestion for improvement to the simple script is also welcome.
Any support possible?
