Slideshow screensaver for Gnome based on Pygame

Project Description

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

  1. Install the system-wide dependencies:

    • python 2.7
    • dbus-python
    • xautolock
  2. Install the python package:

    sudo pip install slideshow-screensaver
    
  3. Configure the screensaver to run automatically:

    • Disable any other screensavers.
    • Make slidesaver-daemon run at startup.
