I have pretty minimal i3wm install and I recently tried to set up blanking and DPMS, but
the thing is it does not work:
$ xset s blank s 10 dpms 10 15 20
$ xset q
auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000002
00: Caps Lock: off 01: Num Lock: on 02: Scroll Lock: off
03: Compose: off 04: Kana: off 05: Sleep: off
06: Suspend: off 07: Mute: off 08: Misc: off
09: Mail: off 10: Charging: off 11: Shift Lock: off
12: Group 2: off 13: Mouse Keys: off
auto repeat delay: 660 repeat rate: 25
auto repeating keys: 00ffffffdffffbbf
bell percent: 0 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100
acceleration: 2/1 threshold: 4
prefer blanking: yes allow exposures: yes
timeout: 10 cycle: 600
default colormap: 0x20 BlackPixel: 0x0 WhitePixel: 0xffffff
DPMS (Energy Star):
Standby: 10 Suspend: 15 Off: 20
DPMS is Enabled
Monitor is On
What could prevent blanking and suspend from happening and how to debug this? I don't
have any screensaver installed, could this be an issue?

Hello Patrick. Our criteria are mostly concerned with a default Fedora
installation (Workstation, KDE, Server, etc). We might even state it
explicitly in this criterion. So no, switching users between different
desktop environments is unlikely to be release blocking.
I've pushed out an initial F32 flatpak runtime/SDK and a few apps built
against it. Would be awesome if people could give them a try:
flatpak remote-modify --enable fedora-testing
flatpak install fedora-testing org.gnome.Maps (or anything else from the
The Bodhi update is at
and if things seem to roughly work, please leave karma there.
More F32 based flatpaks are coming, this here is just an initial test
batch. I'll work on rebuilding all of the flatpaks against F32 runtime
if this looks good.
There's also a new gnome-extensions-app flatpak in the fedora-testing
flatpak remote -- please give this a try as well (and then leave karma
if it works. Thanks Florian for all the hard work with this!

An updated f32-backgrounds package is available for testing which
includes its time of day version. A dummy supplemental wallpaper is
available upon request from maintainers of other desktop environments.
