Installed xbuntu 7.10 r3 to my old 701 EEE PC, as I just want to use it as a photo frame.
Has everything built-in. Except had huge trouble finding how to change the screen saver directory to a different one.
After several hours, found out how to do it:
edit your ~/.xscreensaver file and add:
Here are the options for the .xscreensaver file http://linux.die.net/man/1/xscreensaver-getimage
if you want the screensaver to fill the entire screen you have to add the clip option, hence :
sudo su -
(all the screensaver command files are in that directory). Change the Exec line:
Exec=glslideshow -root -clip
or Exec=glslideshow -root -duration 15 -pan 15 -fade 5 -titles
command line options for glslideshow is here: http://linuxcommand.org/man_pages/glslideshow1.html
Once Ubuntu is installed, here's a nice and helpful quick reference guide for Linux commands, could really help someone get started with Linux or just for reference
