Help with Feh

Fri Jan 25, 2013 11:21 pm

Im attempting to build "digital frame" of sorts. Ive already installed feh and have it all set up. My questions is. Im trying to figure out how to pull down pictures from the web to create the slide show. I really want to keep pictures off the local SD card. So how do i go about doing so. I get an imlib2 error if i try to pull down from lets say photobucket. Is there a special command i need to run or any more installers?

Are you sure the url you use is the correct one (some image storage sites are quite picky about direct linking)?

Looks like feh might require libcurl for http...
