Slideshow screensaver for Gnome based on Pygame


Slideshow Screensaver is a screensaver for Gnome which displays a new photo every 10 seconds from $HOME/Pictures. If you want to customize the photo directory, the time between photos or the screensaver delay you will need to edit the source code for now.

This is a very simple app which, for now, might not play nicely with xscreensaver, gnome-screensaver, etc.


  1. Install the system-wide dependencies:

    • python 2.7
    • dbus-python
    • xautolock
  2. Install the python package:

    sudo pip install slideshow-screensaver
  3. Configure the screensaver to run automatically:

    • Disable any other screensavers.
    • Make slidesaver-daemon run at startup.



  • GUI Configuration
  • Distribution packages
  • Simple image viewer app


  • Work with other (or no) desktop environments
  • Python 3
  • Cool Transitions
