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

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 ;)

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.
