With Raspberry Pi we can easily create an image slideshow, without using StartX and with one single line of commands. We will use fbi, that is used to display the specified file(s) on the linux console using the framebuffer device. It supports all image types, including jpeg, ppm, gif, tiff, xwd, bmp and png. For other formats fbi tries to use ImageMagick.
Install fbi using apt-get command:
apt-get update apt-get install fbi
Now to create an image slideshow in the current directory, type:
fbi -a -noverbose -t 4 /path/to/images/*.png
With the above command, we tell fbi to:
1) Enable autozoom (-a)
2) Hide the status line on the bottom of the screen (-noverbose)
3) Load the next image after N seconds (-t)
4) Find all *.png files and show them in alphabetic order (1.png, 2.png, etc)
When the last image is displayed, fbi will go back to the first image.
