Slideshow Screensaver v0.3.1

Introduction

Slideshow Screensaver is a screensaver for Gnome which displays a new photo every 10 seconds from $HOME/Pictures. If you want to customize the photo directory, the time between photos or the screensaver delay you will need to edit the source code for now.

This is a very simple app which, for now, might not play nicely with xscreensaver, gnome-screensaver, etc.

Installation

Ubuntu

Packages are available on the Launchpad PPA

    • python 2.7
    • dbus-python

  3. Configure the screensaver to run automatically:
