fbi to display some images.
fbi has some keyboard controls, like
Page Down, etc. to control the images.
Instead of using keyboard, I want to send these control commands over SSH to
I have already tried the following method:
mkfifo /tmp/mycmd fbi /myfolder/*.jpg < /tmp/mycmd &
After doing so,
fbi doesn't start. I try sending some commands like
echo . > /tmp/mycmd, but it doesn't start; and gives the following error:
using "DejaVu Sans Mono-16", pixelsize=16.67 file=/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSansMono.ttf ioctl VT_GETSTATE: Inappropriate ioctl for device (not a linux console?)
What is the problem?
How can I send commands to
fbi over SSH !?
