    Hi, everyone.
    I just finished installing our Sandbox and it works great for a short while then the whole thing goes blank (monitor and projector). I just need to move the mouse to have it all appear again. When I run the program in the terminal I get the following messages (text in quotes are a single line):

    “Vrui: Unable to inhibit screen saver due to exception Vrui::ScreenSaverInhibitor”
    “DBus: Unable to inhibit screen saver”
    “Vrui: Unable to inhibit screen saver due to exception Vrui::ScreenSaverInhibitor”
    “DBus: Unable to inhibit screen saver”

    I put the commands into the config file exactly as instructed. Any ideas on how to stop this from happening? I work at a museum and stopping by the computer every 30 minutes isn’t a sustainable solution lol.

    Thanks in advance.

    This could be a problem with Vrui, DBus, or the screensaver. Vrui is sending something analogous to the following command to inhibit the screensaver. What do you get if you run the following?

    gdbus call --session --dest org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver --object-path /org/freedesktop/ScreenSaver --method org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver.Inhibit "Vrui" "Vrui running"

    It should print somthing like “(uint32 X,)”, where “X” is an integer.
