I'm here with another request
The problem is I can't use sdlmame with my joypad exclusively because it seems unable to stop the screensaver timeout.
Only keyboard and mouse seem able to prevent the screensaver, my joypad seems not to be "seen" by gnome-screensaver.
I've tried uninstalling it and installing Xscreensaver instead, but it behaves exactly the same as the gnome-screensaver does.
Are you aware of a way to use your joypad/joystick without manually disabling the screensaver every time you start sdlmame?
