I am running Raspbian, and I am using this as a display device for a TV in a retail centre. I run Chromium on startup with this line in .profile:
xinit /usr/bin/chromium --kiosk --incognito www.mysite.com
...however none of the solutions to disable screen blanking seem to work (although they do work if I am in the Raspbian GUI). It is quite important (as you can imagine) that the display screen does not go blank.
Does anyone have any solutions to this?
I have tried the following:
setting the xinitrc file as in this example http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/2059/disable-screen-blanking-in-x-windows-on-raspbian
setting exec /usr/bin/X -s 0 dpms -nolisten tcp "$@" in xserverrc
setting blank timeouts in /etc/kbd/config
setting /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf with the following line: xserver-command=X -s 0 dpms
non of the above have worked
I have noticed a possible solution which entails installing xscreensaver then disabling it but I do not know how to make it run on startup.
