Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Morning Wolgang...from reading your blogs it sounds like you use a mac...at least part of the time. If so have you ever had a problem with TextEdit and "smart quotes" or do you have "smart quotes" turned off?? It sounds like "smart quotes" only work in native mac applic...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Wow Paddy…..as always your knowledge astounds me! This is what I have done this morning 1. Tested Keyboards – I commented back in the keyboard, attached an old corded usb pc keyboard I have, changed a single quotation mark in PictureFrame.py using the keyboard, commented back out the keyboard and te...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

I now have my second digital picture frame up and running and again I had many issues getting the program to start automatically from boot. This time, however, I’m confident that I have found the cause, and part solution, to some of these issues. Please ignore my earlier posts as they were workaroun...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Would you mind sending me a few high res photos of your frame in action, especially how you integrated it into your house setting? I am compiling user feedback on the digital frame that they have built to inspire others. Email is on my blog. Thanks much! Some photos have been sent Wolfgang. Not 100...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

OK I think I’m all sorted. I ended up with two problems, one I managed to solve with help from here, and the other, I managed to solve with a solution I hadn’t seen mentioned before. Problem 1 – Was the keyboard conflict and the solution to this was discussed in a previous post. However, when I impl...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Chris, lots of info (great) which I will read properly later but just a quick note: If I start python apps running on a RPi without a keyboard I usually: - ssh in to it - run ``top`` from the terminal prompt - make a note of the ID (left hand column) for the line with python3 as the name of the job...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Practically it shouldn't be a problem as, long term, you probably won't have the keyboard attached to the RPi running the PictureFrame, but it's frustrating not knowing what the cause is. Hi again Paddy, I won’t have the keyboard physically attached but I won’t disable it either by commenting out t...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

Wow...amazing responses. Thank you both! Wolfgang, I have used your blogs extensively and they have been fantastic. The only difficulty I have had is initiating PictureFrame from boot. You’re right, I probably need to update but I’m more than happy with the way it’s working. I have tried your fix us...

Re: Image viewer with transition between images

A big thank you to Paddy and others for developing PictureFrame and Pi3d and also to Wolfgang for his organising, motivating and blog. It's a fantastic program and I’ve got it working on a pi3b almost perfectly. The only part not working perfectly is getting it to start automatically and I've tried ...
