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

    • python-gobject (for GObject 3+)

    • dbus-python

  2. Install the python package:

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

    • Disable any other screensavers.

    • Make watch-idle.py run at startup.
