This is a very customized project written to sit on top of either the Eye of Gnome or Eye of Mate slideshow feature. It stores a file directory and starts or stops a slideshow of the pictures at that location via a Cherry Py web server.
Install the following software:
|Platform||Install Eye of GNOME||Install Eye of MATE|
|Debian/Ubuntu/...||sudo apt install eog||sudo apt install eom|
|Fedora||sudo dnf install eog||sudo dnf install eom|
|Arch/Manjaro/...||sudo pacman -S eog||sudo pacman -S eom|
|snap - setup||sudo snap install eog||Not Available (Yet...)|
|flatpak and flathub - setup||flatpak install flathub org.gnome.eog||Not Available (Yet...)|
You will need to know which method was used to install Eye of Gnome (package from distro/snap/flatpak).
While the project was orignially targeted towards Eye of GNOME, Eye of MATE was included because Eye of GNOME displays the menu bar in slideshow mode in Lubuntu which I am using this for. You may want to try out both just to see if you have any issues with either one
Run the following commands in your terminal:
git clone https://github.com/blaubachn/slideshow.git cd slideshow python3 -m pip install cherrypy python3 src/run.py [--skipconfig] # The --skipconfig parameter starts up the server without displaying the configuration menu
