KDE Screensaver

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


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


* Code cleanup and bug fixes
* Added a not yet complete debugging mode to make it easier to find the cause of bugs which I cannot reproduce on my computer (to activate it, add 'DebugMode=true' to section [Settings] of the configuration file)


* Initial public release

Source(version 0.4.2)
Debian(version 0.4.2; "Sarge"; i386)
Debian(version 0.4.2; unstable with KDE 3.5.0; i386)

 zoom level

Very nice!
What about adding an option to adjust zoom level?

Maybe in the next release. Just out of curiosity: In your opinion, is the current zooming too aggressive or the opposite?

It would be nice if both zoom level and pan speed were adjustable. Where in the code could I hard code different values for these?

Hmmm ... this will probably require some trial and error, but you can play with the floating-point math in the class ViewTrans in smoothslidewidget.cpp. A starting point may be the threshold values used by the two loops in this class' constructor. However, the speed of the movement will still depend on the per-image duration one configures for the slideshow.

I know, the code could be a bit more flexible here ;-)

 Incomplete pics

After installing the app without problems, it only shows the bottom quarter of the current picture at the top of the screen, the rest of the screen is just blank, any ideas?

I have the same problem with a Mandriva 2007. Also with smoothslidesaver-0.4.2-1mdk.i586.rpm and smoothslidesaver_0.4.2-2.tar.gz. Any ideas ?

Thank you for sharing this, it's great!

I'm using a folder with about 4000 pictures in it. But very often SSS shows the same picture several times within a short time. It seems that the randomness isn't perfect.

When my system is under heavy load (io), SSS often keeps showing the same picture over and over, fading it in and out.

Thanks again!

 Quite good, but.....

I installed the Mandriva rpm & it worked fine, but it really maxes out my CPU. I don't have a graphics card, so I try not to run resource heavy screensavers. This one had my CPU running at 100%.

Those with a graphics card shouldn't have a problem with it though.

It would be great if the plugin could auto rotate images based on exif data.

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.
