And you can enable it before playing full screen videos and during that time, it will not dim. After watching the movie or video, disable it again, to get the dimming functionality back.

Your stop script does not define port (check the start script, that one does, and this is missing). So when you run the screen -S $port -X quit command, it looks like ($port is not defined so it results in a blank string): screen -S -X quit Screen interprets this as "set the session name to -X, then run the quit command inside a shell". If you had the ...

we have a Casper netbook (some Taiwan product) with intel chipset. When I installed Xubuntu it only worked at 800x600 and I couldn't find any drivers that support 1024x600.

While I don't have an actual answer to your question, I do have a work-around which I have been using to get your described behaviour. If you right click on a window titlebar, you'll get multiple options and amongst those there should be one saying something like "Always visible on workspace". This will make the window appearing on all workspaces.

Finally got this to work. Looking at some code samples of screen usage, it seems that the -X parameter expects the word: stuff before the actual command, and also the command has to be wrapped in double quotes ("xyz"). Also to make the command run, the Enter keystroke has to be sent along with it. Going off this article on inserting special characters, I ...

Sys is special, you won't be able to create folders there (answers in linked question explain why). Per Fabby's answer to similar question, that would indicate Kernel thinks you have a CRT, therefore you have knobs to adjust brightness and contrast.

In the brightness and lock dialog, change the option "Turn screen off when inactive for:" to "never". Also make sure "Lock" is OFF

On your TV, you need specialised hardware to do this to turn your TV into a "projector" that just "projects" on its own screen. For an android device, it depends on the device (whether or not it has any display input ports) and then you use the same technology as above.

It works now. I think, I know why. I accidentally executed transmission-cli once with the option -d but no value given. Could it be that this means download speed = 0? When I gave the option -D it worked as expected.
