I’m running Totem-xine and the screensaver keeps coming on during a movie. I’ve Googled this problem and read the resulting pages. There were bug reports to Ubuntu about this. I couldn’t find any info on how to fix it though. The last thing that I found said that “the bug is known and fixed upstream”. What does that mean? Does it mean that if I update my distro it is fixed in the latest release? I’m currently using Ubuntu Dapper. The page I’m referring to is here. The couple of other pages I found on Google didn’t have how to fix it either.
I’ve posted this question to a mailing list I’m on too so whatever answers I get I’ll post them here also.
I often come back to my blog to look up answers to technical questions I’ve posted here, especially if I don’t have my laptop with me. It’s proven useful to others sometimes too going by the comments that I get, so I’m glad that it’s helpful to others.
