Re: Stopping Screen Blanking

Thanks.

I just shut it down for the night but will try that tomorrow. I am working at the prompt that you get after you login. The device starts up and ask for login and then I run the command from that prompt.

Re: Stopping Screen Blanking

Ok, I did man xset and found the command.

If I type xset q at the pi@raspberrypi $ prompt I get

xset: unable to open display ""

So I suspect the command needs a display as an argument but every time I have seen the xset q command typed, no one has mentioned a thing about a display argument.

Re: Stopping Screen Blanking

I do get about he message that the screen saver has been disabled. But that is part of the script in no_blank. I will assume the script has a way of determining the commands were executed.`

Let me check the rest of the things in your post and thanks for your reply.
