[manjaro] disable the screensaver temporarily
I have an old laptop connected to our TV that I use for watching downloaded movies / YouTube videos, etc. When watching YouTube videos for instance, the screensaver kicks in after a while. How to disable the screensaver temporarily?
The package “
caffeine-systray” solved the problem (available in AUR). It starts automatically and sits in the system tray. Right click on it and select “Disable Screensaver”. That’s all.
“caffeine-systray” seems to be deprecated. The up-to-date version is called “caffeine-ng”, so you should install that instead.
