How do I create a startup command permanent on every cycle restart ?
As previously having brightness reset when set at power saving mode to turn off the monitor.
- 18.04 64bits 5.4.0-42-generic
- Desktop Nvidia 440 driver
I found out xset dpms 600 900 1800 works on turning off the monitor display but I wanted it to run at startup which i do no need to type manually on the terminal.
I tried adding xset dpms 600 900 1800 to the bottom of home/.profile but it didn’t work.
Further testing and by adding an extra line to run terminal by adding
xset dpms 600 900 1800 gnome-terminal
at the terminal startup checking the
xset -q xset dpms was not set
Standby: 0 Suspend: 0 Off: 0 while it should be
Standby: 600 Suspend: 900 Off: 1800
The weird scenario is when manually launch a terminal without typing anything , the command of
xset dpms 600 900 1800 active.
What would it be the reason ?
.profile with command ‘xset dpms 600 900 1800’
Not trigger on startup
but when I launch terminal manually it trigger the command.
If anyone could explain the reason ? or a better way to run the command on startup rather running on .profile ?
