How to use: Launch steam-screensaver-fix-native or steam-screensaver-fix-runtime or use one of the 2 provided desktop files, which should have (Screensaver fix) in its name. Don't forget to update your autostart file if you start steam on login. Don't use Steam's "Run Steam when my computer starts" option.

My bad, idk it required to launch a different instance, will see if that stop the spamming of the following on systemd's journalctl : Activating service name='org.gnome.ScreenSaver' requested by ':1.44' (uid=1000 pid=2064 comm="/home/myusername/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam -si") Successfully activated service 'org.gnome.ScreenSaver'"

Edit : Now my log are clean from the spam of steam, it did indeed fix the issue and would make diagnosing my sleeping issue more easier nowadays, thank.

Can you tell me what message is being spammed?

HerbalNekoTea commented on 2023-12-24 19:14 (UTC)

I am unsure if the patch had applied, it's still spamming my journal log massively and it's really annoying when i am trying to diagnose unknown issue since i have been using awesomewm instead of gnome.

It actually allows the screensaver even if a game is launched, meaning that if you play a game with a controller instead of mouse/keyboard, your screen will turn off once the timeout is reached.

okay, so i've figured it out. this is from the wiki

By default, the Steam client totally disables screensaving when it is running, whether a game is launched or not.

A workaround to this issue is provided by steam-screensaver-fixAUR: run steam-screensaver-fix-native or steam-screensaver-fix-runtime.

This will allow your screen to turn off if Steam is running, but will keep inhibiting the screensaver if a game is launched.

See Issue 5607 at Valve's GitHub for the details.

how do i use this? just install and that's it?

When I run a Steamgame the screen now turns itself off after the suspend timeout is reached.

Please add git as a make dependency since it is needed to get the sources.

Now you can, thanks for bringing it up.
