I can finally post!!

I have had the same questions as you for a while now, but have one other.... what program are you going to use to display the pictures?

I have one frame I made using Mandriva (wanted dsl for speed and size), and was using the built in screensaver to display the pictures.. it has dissolves and such.

I figured qiv to display on DSL, but how do you start it at boot, and restart it if it stops?  Or do you have another program in mind?

I am using a great program called feh.

I got a lot of help from this website:

Currently, I'm adapting the scripts, and hopefully in due time, I'll contribute back by also making a webpage explaining all my steps and giving my scripts.

I'm 100% convinced that DSL is the best way to go for a Digital Picture Frame, as it's small, and can be installed read-only. That way you can even use an electric timer to turn on/off your laptop; not only blank the screen!

Let me know if you need any help.
