I believe I have found the answer: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/filename.html A nice perl utility called exiftool that I was planning to use for getting exif data across a wide range of media files. Turns out it has a directory sorting system Something along the lines of this command are the answer: exiftool -r -d ...
mplayer has a framebuffer driver (2 versions, in case one doesn't work). Use mplayer -vo fbdev [or fbdev2] <filename> For images, fbi and fim work. Whatever else these two can't handle, you can probably convert to images on the fly ( imagemagick works like magic), so you have everything covered.
Many images are coloured, hence you may use libcaca’s ASCII image viewer (cacaview) and image to text converter (img2iso). ASCII image browser, e.g. cacaview /usr/share/pixmaps/*.* Convert images to various text-based coloured files, e.g. img2txt -W 150 penguins_mating.png > penguins_mating.txt For Fedora and Ubuntu the package caca-utils has to ...
You can use the library from AA-Project Applications: xine-console [video] xaos [fractals/mandelbrod] vlc [video] aview [photos] ... a.m.o
You can use a framebuffer device. The framebuffer mechanism is the one used to display Tux when you boot. There is also the libcaca used to display ASCII-art images.
First off you must make sure the framebuffer is enabled, there is absolutely no way to view images in text mode. Once you have the framebuffer enabled, you can use the program fbi to view images. Package: fbi Linux frame buffer image viewer This is an image viewer for Linux frame buffer devices. It has built-in support for a number of ...
None. You need some kind of display server to display images. Xserver, mir, wayland or similar provide the interfaces for images. getty is designed to emulate text terminals and doesn't have the ability to display images.
I would roll my own solution here. I think you're going to be hard pressed to find something off the shelf that does exactly what you want. I do something along your lines for consolidating all our digital pictures into folders (we have 9+ years), putting 200 images into a folder, because the digital picture frame we use cannot handle everything in one ...
Boot your system using the known working kernel and initramfs, and then do an lsmod to see what modules are loaded. I would bet one of those is something it needs that isn't built into your kernel. I know you can pass command line options to modules when insmoding - maybe there's some command line option that the initramfs passes that you're not passing ...
