Hi,

I installed Gentoo on an old pc to use it as supervision screen to monitor incident tickets in my department.

I have set the system to logon atuomatically and startx, then start awesome, chromium and use xrandr to switch to an external monitor.

Below is what I set in .xinitrc:
Code:

xrandr --output LVDS1 --off && xrandr -s 1280x1024 &

exec /usr/bin/chromium --kiosk http://frplanning/noauth/dsc/it/dashboard/remedy.php &

exec /usr/bin/xset -dpms &

exec /usr/bin/awesome

Since this screen is used for monitoring (this screen will be attached to the wall) I need it to be always on (no screen saving).
using xset -dpms doesn't seem to work here, I also tried xset s off...

Any idea?

Thank you

When I tried it with xset -dpms or xset s off alone it didn't worked either but with:
Code:
xset -dpms s off

in combination it should work.

Ok thanks will try that right away.
Also while writing this post was wondering if I need to start awesome at all, should be possible to run chromium without any window manager, shouldn't it?

Obviously it should work, but because I was not quite sure I've tired to launch firefox in a pure X-environment and it worked. So only an X-server is needed...

That seems to work thanks a lot!
I'll try to set this without a window manager now ;-)
