#2229 open enhancement

-stop-xscreensaver should enable the screensaver when in paused state

Reported by: jphilipz Owned by: beastd
Priority: normal Component: undetermined
Version: 1.1 Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc:

Reproduced by developer: no Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:
How to reproduce:

start mplayer with -stop-xscreensaver
start a video
press pause
screensaver wont activate in the paused state

According to the manpages -stop-xscreensaver "Turns off xscreensaver at startup and turns it on again on exit." so it only turns the screensaver back on when a video ends or is stopped, but not when a user presses pause, which is a problem.

I would classify this as a defect, but it could easily be seen as an enhancement, so i'll let you decide which is more preferable.

This was tested with the mplayer version that comes with Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty which is version 1.1 using smplayer as the GUI front end ( ).

Could you test if the patch attached to this email

fixes your issue?

You would need to specify "-xscreensaver-when-paused" option to activate the feature. You could of course set that option in your config file later on.
