Photo slide show


I have been a Linux user since 1998. With a recent change from Fedora to PCLinuxOS I have changed to KDE from my faithful old GNOME!

There is one thing that is left bothering me - I sometimes give family slide shows at things like 50th BD parties etc. I used to use gThumb which allowed the use of a remote USB controller. I have looked at and tried:
1. digiKam
2. Gwenview
3. KickShow etc.

All these seem like quality software - except none seem to allow remote control. All seem to rely on timed intervals or a mouse click on a particular part of the screen.

I can of course run gThumb - but it looks so washed out and unprofessional in KDE.

So (unless I am mistaken):
1. How do we get the developers to include this feature?
2. Or - what KDE software will do this for me?

Maybe you could write a script that captures an event from this device and calls dcop with parameters (see kdcop for posibilities on running program).

For reporting wishes / bugs for kde programs use:

Also there are programs that makes gnome programs to look as kde - I use gtk style config - comes with suse.
