Capturing keypresses during screensaver.
Dne, 07. 01. 2010 21:58:51 je Timothy Legg napisal(a):
When using Gnome on Lenny,
If the user starts typing while a screensaver is operating, the
representing the first keypress is lost. Is there a way that the
screensaver can send this character to the focused application?
You may achieve that by "disabling" the screensaver and relying on the
Gnome Power Options to blank your monitor instead (say, by setting the
monitor to standby after a given amount of minutes). In this case, the
screensaver won't kick in, but it will still be used for detecting
"idle" system condition. The actual timeout taken by the monitor to
standby is the sum of the two timeouts (when you slide the screensaver
timeout slider, you can watch the Gnome Power Options slider move
accordingly, to reflect that).
Of course, this way, any fancy screensaver (company logo) you may have
in place will be lost.
