I want to setup photoframe-app and currently deal with script controlling xloadimage 4.1 on fedora13 (188.8.131.52-54) with Gnome 2.30.0. For a pictureframe app fullscreen display (without frame) is a must, so I used the -onroot option. xloadimage seems to operate well, but i get no picture (normal GUI and consoles continues). Maybe I can get short hints to few questions:
1) I read some very old threads here that GNOME does not support access to root display. Is this still the case and maybe the reason for having no picture visible in -onroot option?
2) Any other app/image tool (script controllable) you can suggest to get fullscreen pics (no frame visible) on Gnome@fedora displayed.
3) other setups needed mandatory like f13 console boot only, creating on/new display and use this, etc.
4) any up to date photoframe-apps/projects known (I found only old/obsolete ones).
