Occasionally I want to turn the screen off while leaving the laptop/desktop running in the background. This example service makes it a single button click:

DPMS
Turn the screen off/on

Install check:

which xset
Running check:

xset q | grep "DPMS is Enabled"
Start command:

xset dpms force on
Stop command:

xset dpms force off - Oct 16 2011
When the service is start'ed or stop'ed using sudo, I get the following error message:

--------------

The command produced the following error:
QPixmap::handle(): Pixmap is not an X11 class pixmap
QPixmap::handle(): Pixmap is not an X11 class pixmap
QPixmap::handle(): Pixmap is not an X11 class pixmap

Seems broken (with Kde 4.6.2), there is no field to enter a file name?

Anyway, from the source code it's clear that the applet requires a TailFileName field in ~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc

So if others run into this they only have to configure the number of entries they want, then search the config file for TailSize and add the TailFileName entry there. - Apr 20 2011
