Nookie Slideshow Conky by alecive Nookie Slideshow Conky by alecive
This is a slideshow made with conky. It's easy to setup and to customize, and it comes with three different dimensions (to fit all necessities).
Actually, it's a porting of the slideshow rainmeter conky by JavaJosh82 [link] . Thanks to iacoporosso for the tip, and JavaJosh82 for the instpiration.

************************************************

Dependencies:
  • imagemagick is mandatory. Be sure to check if it's installed to run the script properly.

************************************************

Installation:
To suit your needs, you have to extract the archive, and modify few things.
  • slideshow.sh -> This is the script that manages images. In the beginning of the file there are two variables you can change. The former is "directory", and it handles the directory in which there are images to slide. The latter is "dim", and it manages the dimension of the slideshow itself; it can be set to "big", "medium" or "small" (default is "medium").

  • NookieSlideshowConky -> This is a simple conky made to run the slideshow script. Change the value after "${execpi" to increase or reduce the refresh rate. Default is 60 (seconds).

************************************************

2012-02-10 Update:
  • Modified form factor of the frame to better match the majority of images (that generally are in 4:3 ratio).

  • Improved the script, and added more shadow to the frames.

One last thing I forgot, the slideshow randomly plays the images, but what I've noticed is that it will always at some point show an image, then another one and then play these two, or like another one over and over in some kind of loop, then move on and start showing other images. But sooner or later it gets stuck in this loop going back and forth with a few images being displayed over and over before moving on and showing the others...

It would be nice if the slideshow can be made to just start at a beginning and then go to the end and when it's done showing everything, start from the beginning again, because right now the random displaying of images isn't working very well....

THANKS
