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. While the project was originally targeted only 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.


Install Eye of GNOME or Eye of MATE (see chart below), git, Python and pip. Then, if you understand them, run the following commands in your terminal:

git clone
cd slideshow
python3 -m pip install --upgrade -r requirements.txt
python3 src/ [--skipconfig]
# The --skipconfig parameter starts up the server without displaying the configuration menu
