Slideshow on images folder


HI.

In windows when I copy a bunch of images from my Digital Camera to my desktop, I have an option to view as slideshow.

Is there something similar in Linux? I am looking for something that will take under 3 seconds to do each time I want to do it.

Thanks,
David

you can rename it if you donīt like the way it sounds but it fills your need.

gqview is really simple but good, Curiously enough I went to sourcforge looking for pornview to download it, When I click on the project home page link It takes me to Microsoft.com. WTF is that about? http://sourceforge.net/projects/pornview/
