Description Svyatoslav Timofeev 2023-07-23 17:51:11 UTC
SUMMARY
***
Idle Script in settings of Power Management is separated from Idle Inhibit, which makes impossible wljoywake and caffeine to create screensaver inhibited by joystick
***


STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Setup wljoywake or caffeine to inhibit idle
2. Set Idle Script to Screensaver under Wine
3. Script Inhibit does not work!

OBSERVED RESULT
Screensaver on wine still running on Screen Inhibit, which is "undefined behavior"

EXPECTED RESULT
Idle Script should be inhibited by programs

SOFTWARE/OS VERSIONS
Linux/KDE Plasma: CachyOS (Arch Linux)
(available in About System)
KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.6
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.108.0
Qt Version: 5.15.10

Oh, sorry.
I'm using Windows Screensaver in Wine, such as fancy Dream Aquarium

I wrote simple script for launching Windows screensaver with Wine.
But, it triggers when screensaver of KDE (screen locker, screen sleep) inhibited by other programs, such as Caffeine or wljoywake

There is no way to prevent script from triggering, while screensaver inhibited by programs or D-Bus

Not sure how wljoywake or caffeine inhibit idle, but Bug 457859 (systemd-inhibit is not respected) seems like a related issue.

Reopening as "not a duplicate". I haven't gotten around to testing custom script idle behavior, but this is different to Bug 457859 which is not at all about custom scripts and just talks about preventing regular suspend actions.
