Description:

SSS (Screen Saver Stopper) is a tiny application which prevents the screen saver from starting as long as the SSS window is open. This is useful when you are watching a movie, viewing the progress of a program's compilation or performing any other task which the blanking of your screen by the screen saver can disrupt.

SSS works with both XScreenSaver and the KDE KScreenSaver (KDE's "screen corners action" option only supports KScreenSaver). It is much easier to use than opening the Control Center, disabling the screen saver from there, and re-enabling it once you're done. To temporarily disable the screensaver, simply open SSS by clicking on its icon. Close the SSS window when you want the screensaver to be re-enabled. It's that simple.




Changelog:

2006-10-04 (version 0.9.1)
* added Slovak translation (thanks to Jozef Riha)

2005-06-19 (version 0.9)
* initial release

 Good utility!

Screen savers are really annoying when watching a movie or reading a big document/pdf file.

Because of this annoyance I have disabled screensavers ;).

Your SSS utility gives a little more control on annoyance :). Thanks.

 Another possibility

You can also enable / disable the screensaver via DCOP: Just create two desktop icons, which execute

dcop kdesktop KScreensaverIface enable true

or

dcop kdesktop KScreensaverIface enable false

respectively.

As a matter of fact, SSS also uses DCOP to control kscreensaver (xscreensaver uses a different mechanism). However, the advantage of having a window instead of just icons is that you get feedback on whether the screensaver is enabled or disabled at any given moment. Regards,
Michal

I suspected so (using DCOP). :) Well, that's true. I don't want to belittle your effort either. I just wanted to point out an alternative way of doing this.

Maybe your app could act as a Kicker plugin so it doesn't obscure other windows or be "in the way" of any other windows?

Cheers, and keep up the good work! :)

Don't worry, I didn't feel belittled :) Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately, in order to make SSS an applet, I would have to rewrite it in C++, as applets aren't possible with Kommander afaik (yet), so I don't think I'll do it in the nearest future. It is, however, possible to put SSS in the system tray by modifying the .desktop file (right-click, choose Properties, in the Application tab choose Advanced Options and select 'Place in system tray'). Unfortunately, I haven't found any way of disabling the taskbar entry , so the icon is only visible in the system tray and not in the taskbar.

 errors

I get opening and closing errors. Any ideas. Using Mandriva2005-LE and all current updates. Tried to show a snapshot of the errors but there is no facility here to do it.

Error 1 when opening the popup.

Error in widget Form1:
Unknown function group: `Timer`



Error 2 when closing the popup.

Error in widget Form1:
DCOP return type bool is not yet implemented

Any help will be appreciated since I view a lot of DVDs on my machine and it will be a big help.

Cheers. John.

Most probably, your Kommander is too old. Check what the output of
kmdr-executor --version
is. It should be at least 1.1development1 (or perhaps 1.1development2 if I missed something :) ). If your version is older, you should try upgrading KDE or downloading Kommander alone (from http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=12865).

 why ?

 
 by gollum on: Oct 4 2006
 
Score 50%

Why, if it's so simple to disable sreen saver, doesn't kapps use it ?

quote = Enforer :
dcop kdesktop KScreensaverIface enable true
dcop kdesktop KScreensaverIface enable false
/quote

for instance : when Kaffeine start to read a movie, it may just have to run a comand, an when the movie end, run a second command.
Doesn't seem very hard to imlement !

Perhaps should we ask for it to be done ?

I haven't actually tried watching movies on Linux yet, but if what you said is true, I'd suggest filing a bug report. (I've never filed a bug report myself, but I've only used Linux for two months.)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
