Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Axel, Thanks for your input. Absolutely I would rather load a local path instead of a weblink. Can I just do a: git clone https://github.com/axel-b/screenly-ose/tree/allow-local-assets ? I can test this no problem, I have full image backups. Ill also provide feedback too. Thanks -Will I want to mana...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Hello, I want to manage the picture library on the local system itself that also runs Screenly. I installed apache2 and it seems to work fine running on the default port 80, as Screenly is on 8080. Could I also just run it on the same daemon that Screenly uses instead, or, what is the best recommend...

Re: Command line Image viewer?

I was unable to use the option: -dX (this modifies the interval between picture changes). However I was able to use this method: (1) create a .pqivrc file in your home. IE: /home/pi/.pqivrc in this file, on the first line type: -dX (X being the seconds between picture change), ie: -d3 (2) use the '-...

Re: Command line Image viewer?

I followed this exactly. Compiles just fine and installs. I am able to run pqiv from the console itself, but I can't redirect from a different tty to the console, (in this case pts/1). Probably I will be able to make a script to load pqiv on boot for example and shouldn't have a problem, I just can'...

Re: Command line Image viewer?

My attempts with both fbi and fim are similar. I grabbed fim, (fbi Improved) When I run the command from the console, it loads my test picture fine. When I run the command from SSH, the cursor is either on the bottom or top of the screen on the console. If I type anything on the console, I am just w...

Re: Command line Image viewer?

If you used: 'sudo apt-get install pqiv', you will remove it with: 'sudo apt-get remove pqiv' (without the single quotes). I think I installed pqiv using sudo install. Did you download the package somewhere and compile it yourself? How would I go about getting rid of my pqiv, I can't find it anywher...

Re: Slideshow to the console

Thanks for the link. This is helpful to see what the screen can support.

I am still looking for information also about methods to display pictures in a "playlist" of sorts.

Slideshow to the console

Wondering of any methods for displaying maximum resolution pictures that the pi is capable for.

I am testing right now on the Debian Squeeze distro prepped for the pi.

Thoughts?

Thank you
