Is there a way to make Linux screensavers not pop up when you are
playing a game using only a joystick.
I mean, normally if you are using the computer, you're clicking
the mouse or bashing the keyboard - and that keeps the screensaver
turned off. But for some mysterious reason, using a joystick doesn't
do that. Weird eh?
I *could* make my game disable the screensaver - but that's not really
a good idea if someone walks away leaving the game running. I guess
the game could include it's own screen saver - but it seems a shame
to override the one the user selected.
There has to be a way to do this properly.
