Screensaver Slideshow Issue

Post#1 by ALeslie » 23 Feb 2016, 23:03

Firstly, I want to say I'm really liking the Porteus Kiosk. I had looked at it previously for a kiosk project, but since it can't run on Raspberry Pis, I had to build a linux image on my own. Now we are trying to replicate what I did on the Pis on current hardware(x86 based) and jumped right to Porteus. The best part is that you seem to have built in just about everything I've been trying to add to my custom set up. So basically it's a lifesaver.

The one thing I'm having an issue with is the Slideshow Screensaver. The regular screensaver works, the video screensaver works, but the slideshow will not. Since the other pieces are working fine, I'm assuming it's having trouble downloading or extracting the ZIP file. I'm working in a Windows environment, so I'm curious if that is causing the issue. I've tried zipping using the standard Windows utility, I've tried 7-zip. Do the photos need to be a certain filesize or resolution?

If you have any ideas, please let me know. Thanks again!

Hello ALeslie,

This is a known bug fixed in 'automatic updates' channel which wasn't merged to stable release yet. Done now - please download 3.6.0 ISO again.

Thank you.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
