Arduino Screen Controller

  • Listener that evaluates state:
#!/bin/bash

echo `date` "Called with $1" >> ~/screen-control.log

STATE=`/opt/vc/bin/tvservice -s`

if [ ! -z "$1" ] && [ $1 = "toggle" ]; then

  echo `date` "Toggling screen."
  echo `date` "Toggling screen." >> ~/screen-control.log
  
  if [[ $STATE == *"TV is off"* ]]; then

    echo `date` "Screen is off, turning on."
    echo `date` "Screen is off, turning on." >> ~/screen-control.log
    /opt/vc/bin/tvservice -p && fbset -depth 16 && fbset -depth 32 && xrefresh -display :0.0
  else

    echo `date` "Screen is on, turning off."
    echo `date` "Screen is on, turning off." >> ~/screen-control.log  
    /opt/vc/bin/tvservice -o
  fi
    
  # BUG: Not sure why, but if screen is on, and a toggle is triggered, context menu appears.
  # The Escape key is the windows left key and will hide the context menu.
  export DISPLAY=:0.0
  xdotool key Escape

  • Listener with no state:
#!/bin/bash


if [ ! -z "$1" ] && [ $1 = "on" ]; then

  echo `date` "Turning screen on."
