I use TeamViewer 15.4.4445 on Linux Mint 19. Because of the coronavirus epidemic, we all switched to distance education. When I listen the speaker using TeamViewer and not move mouse and not press keys on keyboard my screen locked as inactive. I need to enter password to continue. Can TeamViewer send dummy active signal such as VLC player when I look film to prevent screen lock?
did you try one of the sulutions mentioned here :
Your solution about VLC application but I havn't problem with VLC, I have problem with TeamViewer. VLC as example and it has option "Disable screensaver". I need such option in TeamViewer preferences.
just exchange vlc with teamviewer:
xset s off; teamviewer; xset s on;
either in a bash script or a desktop file
Also Mint might give a configuration option to disable the screensaver locally.
I don't need a ctutch solution. Also I don't want to disable screensaver at all. It is a problem of TeamViewer application that haven't options to disable screensaver during active session.
