Is there a slideshow program that can use mouse buttons


I want to find a slideshow program that I can run from the command line that can use mouse clicks to do certain things such as:

go to next image if clicked on right side of screen
go to previous image if clicked on left side of screen
go to thumbnail view if clicked on top of screen
exit slideshow program if clicked on bottom portion of screen
pause/play slideshow if clicked in middle of screen.

Obviously, i don't expect to find a program that is perfectly designed for my needs, but that's just the idea that i'm looking for. Currently, i have not found a slideshow program that can take mouse clicks and do anything with it other than pan/zoom.

The htc phones out there have a slideshow program that uses finger swipes and taps to do certain things in the slideshow...i really like that on my phone, and i want to have something like that in a computer slideshow.

Any ideas anyone?

Those help, but what i'm really looking for is something where i can run a command like: gthumb --slideshow --fullscreen --delay 5 /home/user/pics1/

I've been working with feh before, but right clicking doesn't do anything other than pan/zoom.

I'm really hoping to get something going because my touchscreen lcd would be way better if you could control the slideshow by touching the screen (same as a left mouse click)
