how can I disable the Screensaver on Raspbian Jessie? I tried putting this into .xinitrc

xset s off
xset -dpms
xset s noblank

but it doesn't work for me

  • which .xinitrc. The one in etc/... or in the Pi's home directory? Jan 6, 2016 at 9:43
  • I tried this ~/.config/autostart/.xinitrc and this ~/.xinitrc --- x11-xserver-utils is installed Jan 6, 2016 at 10:08

    @YannikMündler What kind of screensaver? The fancy drawing thing or the screen-going-off thing?
