What exactly does xset do?
I was wondering for sometime "How the rate of memory leaking of Firefox is not as severe with Openbox as it is with Fluxbox, especially when Firefox is an inactive window?". This leak is nasty, RAM of 600MB - 700MB and the overhaul load of SWAP is up to 800MB to 900MB.
Yesterday, I have asked my self this question and I planned on asking someone about it in the Openbox community, but then I recalled that I have added a few lines (commands) from the Openbox autostart.sh
script of thenktor, which are unusual to me.
These are the commands:
- Code: Select all
# the rest
xset s off
xset s noblank
I have added these lines to my statup script of Fluxbox ~/.fluxbox/startup and I switched to Fluxbox.The result
: Firefox was running, at night for 8 hours, under a screensaver and as an inactive window a few hours later and Firefox took between 330MB to 420MB of RAM and the SWAP is currently at 135MB.
