Do you know how to (permanently) disable screen saver on UNIX box?
Would I use a single Unix command, an X window System command, appropriate kernel param(s) setting(s), etc.?
I'm not sure how to do this even once. Whatever method, I may have to embed it in boot-up scripting to achieve permanency.
The machine is Compaq (HP) Tru64 UNIX v5.1A.
Look at the xset command. Then in a shell, use the s option:
xset s off
In your xwindows startup file (maybe /home?), something/.x11start, remove the line with x.
