I'm building a system for a presentation in a shop (bargains, accessories, various information)
Here at LQ, a user (catkin) pointed me to gqview and I got it working from command line but I can not get it to run in a loop.
There is also a dvd with a promotional video which I wanted to be able to play. I succeeded by using VLC and starting a playlist from command line.
1) does anyone know of a way to loop a presentation of pics in gqview or is there another program to achieve this?
2) how can I automatically start these programs with the switches after logon? (not simultaneously of course)
I'm using debian and I have tried by adding:
vlc -f -L <path & filename to playlist>
to rc.local but nothing happens.
I know that this is not the best way but I don't understand how to do it differently.
Thanks a lot for your ideas!
