how to turn off the blank screen

since there is no screensaver (and I wish this was a feature that was included soon in an update) I have using the wallpaper to scroll thru some pics that I have, but the screen goes blank after 5 minutes. How do I turn that off?

using firefox 18.0.1 for ubuntu conical

Thank you

it's about 5 mins which is what the program is set up for, but I heard there was some way to disable this feature

Re: how to turn off the blank screen

You need to check the screensaver settings in your Linux distribution (e.g. gnome-screensaver-preferences)

Re: how to turn off the blank screen

You can open the help screen of your Linux distribution and search for screensaver to get information about this subject.

You can open a terminal window and run the above mentioned gnome-screensaver-preferences

Did you check after how much idle time the srcreensaver kicks in?
