Can someone help with the problem of screen blanking. I have set 'Turn screen off when inactive for' to never and in order to use my system (desktop) effectively, I have used the advice given in Disable blank screen in 12.04 i.e.
xset -dpms s off s noblank s 0 0 s noexpose
this however only works for a session and I have to go through the same thing again each time I start up. Seems mighty strange that an OS has a setting that doesn't work. I am new to Ubuntu so can I have any advice or instructions in clear terms. Do not assume I know anything about the file system or anything else.
