A raspberry pi optimized full-screen gallery program that can talk to flickr, smugmug and deviantart (more coming soon!).
- Install raspbian
Check out pigal into a local repository:
git clone git://github.com/djcp/pigal.git /home/pi/pigal/
Run the setup script which will install the necessary debian packages, ruby gems and ensure the pigal server starts at boot via an @reboot cron job. It's fairly easy to understand so please review it before proceeding.
cd /home/pi/pigal && ./bin/setup.sh
Reboot your pi.

and the URL is:
