I'm trying to setup a very slimmed down console only Debian system to act as a simple slideshow photo display. I know that it is possible to show graphics (I guess using the framebuffer) in the console without running X11 but I haven't been able to track down anything that I could use to display images.
Has anyone actually ever made a console based picture screensaver? Or is there at least some package out there that would get me part of the way there? I know that there are options for Gnome, KDE, etc... but it would be great if I could keep this build as simple as possible.
