Screensaver vs Movies

If you use mplayer to play your movies then add this line to ~/.mplayer/config to turn off Xscreensaver. Much better than hitting CTRL every few minutes!

# Write your default config options here!
stop-xscreensaver=1

  1. Thank you!

    just as a side note (in hopes of returning the favor), I noticed when I installed Kubuntu that the cache for mplayer was HUGE (like, 1 MB), which is way too much for streaming audio…

    # change the cache from HUGE to something reasonable
    cache=128

  2. For Debian Lenny, put this line in config file,

    heartbeat-cmd=”gnome-screensaver-command -p”

    (It’s in the man page)
