I'm using Ubuntu 11.10.

There's a option in Totem that says to disable screen saver while playing movie, but it doesn't work.

Is there anything else I can do to make it work ?


You can alternatively use Caffeine

Its a status bar application able to temporarily prevent the activation of both the screensaver and the "sleep" powersaving mode

You can get Caffeine here https://launchpad.net/caffeine or

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:caffeine-developers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install caffeine python-glade2
