I am trying to locate a simple image viewer that does the following simple function:
- Able to open JPEG files (only .jpg images loaded).
- Open them in full screen mode (launched via terminal command).
- Able to close once clicked on them in full screen mode (example config file: MOUSE_BTN0 = quit)
I tried a few, I liked the simplicity of Eye of Gnome ( eog ), but the close on a click while in full screen doesn’t seem an option? Unless there’s a config file hidden somewhere?
Anyone have any suggestions?
Using OpenSUSE 11.2
I need that too for the PC in my kindergarten.
Right now I use the screensaver-diasshow. It works okay, only the kids can’t control the viewer - just watch
Well, since no replies, I simply downloaded eog source and changed the code a tiny bit to allow the application to close upon a mouse click detection when on full-screen mode. Works for me.
You may want to contribute back to that apps developers. Sounds like a simple change that may be useful to others.
I would, but let’s be honest, adding 2 lines of code to say, “on click, close program” is not something they need reminding, it’s a feature that most eog users simply don’t use.
I’ve tried adding a “request” for the developer to add an option like that in the next version, we shall see if they implement. Totally up to them.
