What is the official way of detecting when the screensaver is activated?
I thought it might be the "_SCREENSAVER_STATUS" property of the root
window so I tried running:
while true; do xprop -root _SCREENSAVER_STATUS; done
And then starting the screensaver with gnome-screensaver-command -l
Nothing showed up. I must be missing something obvious.
Is this documented anywhere?
PS: apologies if this is not the correct list, I can't think of a better
