Applications and Tools


FlickrFrame is a set of Perl scripts that allow you to turn a standard Linux distribution into digital picture frame connected to Flickr.com. Users can "subscribe" to any number of Flickr photosets, which will then be displayed as a slide show.


Slideshow is a kiosk-style application for showing text, image, and video in a loop on monitors and projectors. It is not meant for situations where interactive control is required, but when the content is continuously looping for a long time. The content is updated through a Web GUI. The application is split into two packages, the backend and frontend. The backend is written in C++ and OpenGL. and the frontend uses Python. Currently. the frontend is very GNU/Linux specific and will not run on any other platform, but is meant to be as platform independent as possible, as long as it handles OpenGL.


GNOME Photo Frame is a photo frame gadget for the GNOME desktop. It shows pictures on the desktop from multiple sources: local folders, F-Spot databases, Flickr API, Picasa Web Album API, Tumblr API, FaceBook and RSS.
