Screen saver web page issue

It could be also that the event is not fixed at all as Chrome 104.x is recent enough to not download any components. After a few months it may try and then the issue may be recreated ... If this is really the case then 'automatic updates' service (keeping Chrome updated) is the only way to have this...

Screen saver web page issue

cch, I was able to reproduce the issue. Seems its caused by the Chrome browser which generates as input event approx 50 seconds after first start (probably when checking for updated components like e.g. widevine plugin) and it breaks the idle time. If you want to reproduce this bug then its enough t...

Screen saver web page issue

Hello cch,

1) Which browser are you using?

2) Please set the screensaver webpage to some static HTML like:
https://www.kernel.org

and check if you are able to recreate the problem.

Thanks

server: battery level

I think you are right - will go with '+' only (visible when battery is charging).

Setting system to use 24hr time

Hello achard, I have done some testing on: http://www.uize.com/examples/digital-clock.html and system localization does not matter. Browser needs to be localized to a non US version. Polish localized Firefox displays a 24 hour format on this page. This could be done through the customized builds ser...

server: battery level

Dont want to introduce another column but maybe we could use '+' character as an indicator for charging and '-' for discharging?

Sample for charging would be:
+33%

What do you think?

Kiosk boots fast so you may consider using 'halt_idle=' function for maximum power savings.

mapping hardware buttons?

Must be a driver problem.

Does MX Linux give you an opportunity to upgrade the kernel from their repos?
If yes then please test latest kernel version.

If it wont help then we cannot do anything about it I'm afraid (hardware change is needed).

mapping hardware buttons?

Please run this command to restart the Xorg session:

Code: Select all

openbox --exit
If it wont help then please check if MX Linux suffers for the same problem.

Thanks
