Hi !!
I would like to start automatically any pic viewer (like feh and puppy´s viewnior ) when puppy starts without any intervention making an slide show in fullscreen mode of a folder named "pics".
I have a thinpc (no hard disk ,128mb ram and 128mb flash and transmeta-800MHZ) handmade attached to a 17´´ monitor with last puppy version.
Puupy is running flawessly on this mini config!!!!!
I have search and people said that "feh" is the best for this task.

I´m a begginer in linux ,so any help would be appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance.

You could use feh, or maybe qiv. Don't know about viewnior as never used. With feh you need imlib2. and libgiblib-1.0.6. (I think qiv needs gtk1 library files.)

Say your directory of pix was /pics, you could try opening the file /root/.xinitrc, and changing, (near the bottom of the file):

Code:
#exec $CURRENTWM


to:

Code:
feh -FZ -D 10 /usr/share/backgrounds
#exec $CURRENTWM


N.B. Make sure you add the feh line before the #exec $CURRENTWM line.

Also, you might need to play around with the parameters for feh, in a terminal, to get the right mix for you. Run feh --help to see options.
