Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Sapnho - you have no idea, how many digital picture frames pi projects I've tried, and this for me is on top! Amazing write ups. Thank you for taking the time to document your work. Thanks! But the glory belongs to Paddy because of his work on Pi3D. At home, we discover great new "images" every day...

Paddy's latest Pi3D update is another great improvement. I have explained the various settings and functionalities here: https://www.thedigitalpictureframe.com/ ... -nov-2019/

Thanks so much, Paddy!

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

@paddyg, when I enter

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~ $ sudo pip3 install pi3d
I still get 2.32
Looking in indexes: https://pypi.org/simple, https://www.piwheels.org/simple
Requirement already satisfied: pi3d in /usr/local/lib/python3.7/dist-packages (2.32)
Anything I am doing wrong?

Re: vcgencmd display_power not working in buster

Ah, just found out that it actually works in HDMI 0 (I believe that is the left HDMI slot of the two)

Does anybody know how to activate it also for HDMI 1?

So I updated everything with sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade and rebooted. However when I enter sudo vcgencmd display_power 0 the display doesn't turn off. Does it wor...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Thanks @SohKahToa, glad you like Pi3D and the blog. This question should ideally be answered by @paggyg who is grail keeper of Pi3D. If I understood you correctly, you want your images to be maximised but not cropped and the remaining screen bits filled with blurred parts of the image. That is actua...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Sadly, the images aren't rotated when shot in portrait mode. The exif info is there, as gpicview is showing the images rotated correctly. Any idea how to fix this? As far as I understand, Pi3D does not look at the Exif data for the file orientation. But it still works fine here, so there may be ano...

If you use tvservice to turn things off, and are not using the VC4 FKMS driver, you can use "fbset -depth 16; fbset -depth 32" to get the display back again after turning the display driver back on with tvservice.
Is there a way to get the display back when using the FKMS driver?

Thanks for the clarification, Jamesh. It would be most useful to have this feature back. Is this a Broadcom or Buster issue?

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Ok, I am fishing for clues here...

In one script I had to add

Code: Select all

sleep 30
to have the Pi wait for another process to be ready first. Can you try inserting this before calling your startup script in crontab -e?

So like

Code: Select all

@reboot sleep 60 && /home/pi/start_slideshow.sh >> /home/pi/cron.log 2>&1

Yes, that works and

Code: Select all

 /opt/vc/bin/tvservice -p; sudo /bin/chvt 6; sudo /bin/chvt 7
to turn it back on.

But I used vcgencmd in many areas and it would be nice to have it back. :?

Ah yes, you must have one older Alexa Gen (2) in your network for devices to be discovered. Once that has happened, it works fine with all Echos.

Yep, same issue here. Buster works fine on the Pi 3 but on the Pi4 the command doesn't work.
