Raspbian Stretch: Screen is always blanked
a-i-ks last edited by a-i-ks
I can’t get my RaspberryPi 2b with Raspbian Stretch to leave the display on permanently. I followed this instructions from GitHub and added the lines mentioned in the instruction to the files
(I had to create the file and the path to the file “~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart”)
I just found out that the location of the autostart file has changed: "/etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart"
Raspbian still seems to turn off the display. MagicMirror still runs without problems. The logfile shows no errors and the website is accessible via (IP of the Raspberry):8080 and shows all modules there.
Do you have any idea how I could proceed to troubleshoot?

Personally, I would install
xscreensaverand use that to disable the screensaver.
In your terminal
sudo apt-get install xscreensaver
Run xscreensaver. Choose Disable Screensaver. Done.
