Not sure what forum to post this in since I'm using Knoppix 3.3 and 4.02.
The "system" I will be using will only have a CDROM and a small USB thumbdrive attached to it. So I really can't install any other software. So If there is anything other than Kuickshow that is installed on Knoppix or DSL or any other "live" CD that can do what I want then I can switch to thoses OS'es. But right now I have Knnoppix 3.3, Knoppix 4.02 and DSL 2.0
I know how to start Kuickshow from the command line. But what I do not know how to do is to start Kuickshow and have it automatically start the slideshow. if I type kuickshow /mnt/sda1 it will load Kuickshow and it has the pictures that I want to be in the slideshow but I would have to hit F2 to start the slideshow. Anyone know what I can put in the command to automatically start the slideshow? I have read the MAN pages, gone through a few dozen pages of google and searched through the forums but can't seem to find the answer. I am using Knoppix 3.3 currently but I am DL'ing 4.0.2 and will give that a try to see if it has more support for the kuickshow slideshow.
I tried to find that kuickshowrc file but couldn't I did a seach on all the kde DIRs and .kde DIRs, there were about 4 or 5 listed and I went into each share/config DIR and didn't see a kuickshowrc. I've changed my project some, and I'm thinking of installing knoppix to a harddrive and using it. Once I do that I'll check back and follow these intructions again. Thanks for the response
