Subject description: screen saver, x screensaver, photo screensaver
 

Hi,
I am a noob. I am running wary 5.5

I want a screen saver to rotate between my personal pictures saved in my documents folder.

I tried to download x screensaver, but couldn't figure out how to get it to install, as it doesn't show up on my list of programs on the install command.

Does x screensaver work with wary 5.5? Is there another screensaver program that works with wary 5.5? Or is there a way to change the original screen saver to show one or more of my pictures?

thanks!
dave

I do not know about screensaver. For slideshow in wary I should use gpicview-0.2.3-w5.pet:

I'm currently running Xenialpup64, and don't have the skill-set to do it anyway. But PPM found a gpicview version for that system, and "download with all dependencies" revealed there weren't any. Just the binary and files necessary to execute it.

Sceensavers applications in Puppies seem to be 'few and far between'. And each Puppy would need a version of gpicview appropriate to it. But,

it should be possible to write a bash-script which wraps it in a "Do While" loop, terminated when some (any?) key is pressed. As I'm not familiar with gpicview, it might also be necessary to include in that script the selection of a folder into which the photos to be displayed are located (symlinked?).

Such script would probably work in any Puppy that can use gpicview 0.2.2 or later. https://blog.lxde.org/tag/gpicview/
