I want to use my Fedora 15 in a kiosk mode displaying the screen on a TV.

My problem is that the screen goes blank after a little while. The system is running GNOME 3 as window manager.

In the configuration settings for the screen there is only possible to change the time before the screen goes blank. I can not configure it to 'never'.

I found an answer at Ubuntu forums. Basically use the two commands:

  1. gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver idle-activation-enabled false
  2. xset -dpms

The last command needs to be added to session properties to be executed each time you login.

Since I gave this answer, I found a shell extension called Caffeine that works very good. You find it at – pablaasmo Feb 11 '14 at 9:29
