Description:

SmoothSlideSaver is a KDE screensaver which shows images from a directory as an OpenGL slideshow. It uses the famous Ken Burns effect and smoothly fades from one image to the next.

You don't need to worry about complicated configuration options, everything should run smoothly out of the box. Just select a directory with some nice pictures (e.g., your digital photo collection) and let the show begin :)


There are prebuilt packages for Debian and Ubuntu (i386 architecture, only). You can either download them via the links below, or more conveniently, apt-get them:

Put one of the following lines into your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://www1.inf.tu-dresden.de/~cw183155/smoothslidesaver debian-sarge/ # Debian stable "Sarge"

deb http://www1.inf.tu-dresden.de/~cw183155/smoothslidesaver debian-unstable/ # Debian unstable (requires KDE 3.5.0 from Alioth (or experimental?))

deb http://www1.inf.tu-dresden.de/~cw183155/smoothslidesaver ubuntu-breezy/ # (K)Ubuntu "Breezy"

Then do the usual steps to install the package:

#> apt-get update
#> apt-get install smoothslidesaver


If you have another Debian based distribution and/or architecture (or if the unstable packages can't be installed), you can easily build your own package. Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb-src http://www1.inf.tu-dresden.de/~cw183155/smoothslidesaver source/

Then execute the following commands:

#> apt-get update
#> mkdir smoothslidesaver
#> cd smoothslidesaver
#> apt-get build-dep smoothslidesaver
#> apt-get source --compile smoothslidesaver
#> dpkg -i smoothslidesaver_*.deb

If you have another distribution installed on your computer, you will have to do it the hard way, sorry :-/ Download the source tarball from the link below, untar it and then execute the following steps in the source directory:

#> ./configure
#> make
#> make install




Changelog:

0.4.2-2
* fixed build issue (You do _not_ need to upgrade, if you already have a (prebuilt) package of version 0.4.2 installed!)

0.4.2

I really like this screen saver. Always been a fan of the Mac screen saver that uses the same effect.



One suggestion... Instead of only choosing one directory, it would be nice to add a list of directories.

This is pretty similar to a screensaver found in the normal Xscreensaver bundle (GLSlideshow), but it manages to be much smoother. GLSlideshow has a "stutter" when loading the next image, which doesn't occur here.

Well done.

The stuttering was the main reason for me to implement my own version. The other one was, that it is way too difficult/unintuitive to set the directory with the images in XScreensaver ...

digikam has a great GL pictureviewer, too - and gwennvieuw uses the same plugin to show GL slideshows. you might just write a screensaver plugin which uses the (kipi?)plugin to show a slideshow.

you'll have a bunch of effects, immediately, and of course - more code re-use and you'll need less time to make the same cool software. and if you improve it, digikam, gewenview and all other apps using the plugins will benefit...

maybe if you can save time this way, you can spend some to make kscreensaver better - i'd love to choose some individual screensavers and see ONLY these; and i'd love to be able to let it switch from one screensaver to another in a certain amount of time... :D
Xscreensaver has all these nice features, why doesn't KDE have them?

Actually, the GL drawing code is based on the GL slidshow plugin from Digikam with a lot of modifications (automatic adjustment of the frame rate according to the monitor refresh rate and so on). Using the plugin is an interesting option, though. Unfortunately, I don't have much time at the moment (and besides: I just wanted that cool Mac thingie ;)

Its not working for me. I point it to a dir containing the pngs I want to display but it says it can't find anything in the dir. That's all it says.
Help?

I see them in the setup btw. And it changes very smoothly with nice effects. but when I hit test or actually let it run. It tells me to configure the image dir in kcontrol.

That's strange. If it works in the preview window, it should also work in in fullscreen mode. What happens when you run the executable directly from an xterm/Konsole shell?

#> smoothslidesaver.kss

If there is any output, please post it here (or mail it to me).

It works with the " smoothslidesaver.kss " but I see this error msg when I exit,
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".

Perhaps I should recheck my xconfig settings?

Thanks for the help...

Hmm ... if DRI is not available, you're probably stuck with the Mesa OpenGL software renderer (everything would be quite slow then). However, it does not explain why it can't find any images ...

I don't think that the OpenGL configuration is the problem, here. Could you try another KDE screensaver (preferably the slideshow screensaver). If it works, I see no reason why SmoothSlideSaver shouldn't either. You should also have a look into the configuration file:

$HOME/.kde/share/config/smoothslidesaver.kssrc

It should contain the path to the directory you selected in the setup dialog.

 Config Ok

The config file does contain the correct path to the images and slideshow does work.
What type of images does it best work with? I have all pngs in the dir.

PNGs should work. I tested this when I read your first comment. Did you compile from source or do you use one of the prebuilt packages?

I can't reproduce the problem, but we can try to debug it, if you like. I currently only have access to a computer running Debian Sarge (maybe Ubuntu Breezy, too). I could build a binary with some debugging code. The alternative would be to send a source patch, apply it to the screensaver's source tree on your computer, recompile and test.

If this is okay for you (and you have the time), mail me whether you can use a binary for 'Sarge' or 'Breezy' or whether a source patch is required (we shouldn't spam the forum with that).

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
