There is a file in your home folder that allows you to configure some settings for Hulu Desktop:
~/.huludesktop. It has an option for scripts to run to dis/en-able the screensaver.
I would like to write a script to be called by Hulu while watching video. It seems that in Ubuntu 10.04 the gconftool settings
idle_activation_enabled no longer inhibit the gnome-screensaver or monitor sleep.
These are the commands I tried to use:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/gnome-screensaver/idle_activation_enabled --type bool TRUE gconftool-2 --set /apps/gnome-powermanager/idle_activation_enabled --type bool TRUE
I have also found
gnome-screensaver-command with the
--inhibit option, but that blocks while active which means that my suspend script would be hard to fit into the two
.huludesktop options (
I would prefer not to use Caffine as this is under Ubuntu NBR and top panel space is valuable.
