Anyone? if I just type 'xset s off' over ssh I get "unable to open display". Should I add it to xinitrc in /etc/x11/xinit ? The only guides on this stuff are for arch and ubuntu seems to do things differently. This makes watching netflix impossible since you have to get up every 10 minutes to move a mouse.

try this..

sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

In that file, look for:
[SeatDefault]

and insert this line:
xserver-command=X -s 0 dpms

should work for you.


Edit: never mind .. ur using lxde.. wasn't paying attention

this should work on kodibuntu, by just adding the -s 0 dpms to the existing xserver-command
