comment How to cause kernel panic with a single command?
On Linux, you might have to echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq before you are able to echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger.

comment mpd/xine like daemon for displaying pictures?
geeqie looks interesting, I will definitely take a look at that. I have trien mplayer, but I am having problems with exactly what you mentioned - pausing it just right after displaying. firefox with the remote option looks interesting, maybe I can use that to draw text "above" the picture (see my comment above). Option 4 seems to be too hard for what I want here, 5 is definitely a nice hack to use as a fallback - thanks!

comment mpd/xine like daemon for displaying pictures?
Good idea - I will look at the animate option, never used that before. Would this allow me to draw text onto the animate window (which I assume to be something like a canvas?)? - That way I don't have to render text onto the image, that takes about 8 seconds on my Atom - too long for my particular needs here.

xine from standard Ubuntu 12.04 repos works with pictures - I did not know that and the xine website sadly doesn't mention it. I will probably go with this option (stupid me, I could have at least tried it before asking...) as I have a set of xine-scripts that I have used for videos in the past. Thanks for the tip!
