# lightsOn.sh
# Copyright (c) 2011 iye.cba at gmail com, 2012-2017 unhammer at fsfe org
# URL: https://github.com/unhammer/lightsOn
# This script is licensed under GNU GPL version 2.0 or above
# Description: Bash script that prevents the screensaver and display
# power management (DPMS) to be activated when you are watching Flash
# Videos fullscreen on Firefox and Chromium. Can also detect mplayer,
# VLC and Parole, see the *_detection variables below.
# lightsOn.sh needs xscreensaver or kscreensaver to work.
# Prerequisites (Debian package / Arch Linux package):
# * pgrep (procps / procps-ng)
# * xset (x11-server-utils / xorg-xset)
# * xprop (x11-utils / xorg-xprop)
# USAGE: Start the script with the number of seconds you want the checks
# for fullscreen to be done. Example:
#
# ./lightsOn.sh 120
#
# will check every 120 seconds if e.g. Mplayer, VLC, Firefox or
# Chromium are fullscreen and delay screensaver and Power Management
# if so. You want the number of seconds to be some seconds less than
# the time it takes your screensaver or Power Management to activate.
#
# If you don't pass an argument, the checks are done every 50 seconds.
# Note: Firefox with HTML5 videos should prevent screensaver on Gnome
# and KDE, but does not yet do the right thing under XFCE:
# https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1168090 and I haven't
# yet found a good way to figure out if a fullscreen FF is playing an
# HTML5 video or not.
# Set the variable `screensaver' to the screensaver you use.
# Valid options are:
# * xscreensaver (default)
# * kscreensaver (the KDE screensaver)
screensaver=xscreensaver
# Modify these variables if you want this script to detect if Mplayer,
# VLC or Firefox Flash Video are Fullscreen and disable
# xscreensaver/kscreensaver and PowerManagement.
mplayer_detection=false
vlc_detection=true
parole_detection=true
firefox_flash_detection=true
firefox_mplayer_detection=true
chromium_flash_detection=true
mpv_detection=true
# Set to true to be verbose, false to be quiet:
verbose=true
# Note: if you're using xscreensaver and the built-in screensaver
# disabling of mplayer (or smplayer) does not work for you, you might
# be able to fix it by adding the line
#
# heartbeat-cmd="xscreensaver-command -deactivate >&- 2>&- &"
#
# to your ~/.mplayer/config and letting mplayer_detection=false in
# this script.
# YOU SHOULD NOT NEED TO MODIFY ANYTHING BELOW THIS LINE
