xset dpms force off
How to add the command to a shortcut, like Fn+F5 in my Samsung NC10This is very useful command to save battery power.Thanks
hi anonymous you can easily do it from keyboard shortcuts from system preferences.
I've tryed this method but i dont know why it doesn't want to runi've created a simple launcher with the command and i've put it in desktop, it's ok, but i really like to do it with a keyboard shortcut, are there any tricks to do it?(I'm using Ubuntu 9.04)
Hi,I didn't understand your question properly. I am also on 9.04. Do as follows, make a file and put#!/bin/bashxset dpms force offadd executable permission to the fileGo to system preferences keyboard shortcut and add the file to it with your preferred keyboard shortcut.Mine works perfectly in this way.
Sorry for my bad english...I think that the problem is the #!/bin/bashnow i've resolved thanks so much
Hi Anonymouse,Can you tell me the steps you did.
can u tell the steps?
Hello Amit, what do you mean? Just type xset dpms force off
In run or on Command Prompt I've tried both this but not working and also explain how to make keyboard shortcut of it.
I've Windows XP please tell on behlf of it.
Amit, I was suspecting that. This tip is for Ubuntu Linux. I'm sure you can buy pretty cheap software for Windows XP. Please search some other place.
Thanx 4 answering my queries. NP
I use "sleep 3 && xset dpms force off" with the excellent gesture recognition app Easystroke. Start my audiobook and then perform the recorded gesture and presto.......
Code:#!/bin/bashsleep 1;xset dpms force off"sleep 1" will prevent make the command work betterThanks TechsPalace
