Slideshow HELL!

First of all........ ARRGGGHHHHHHHHH

fbi the tool to do a slideshow is doing me head in as it does not work so now using something else.


due to issues with raspbian there is a lovely fix to get this working

To build the app on a raspberry pi you need the following:
(if you do no have debian wheezy, things may look different)

# remove the installed version
sudo apt-get remove pqiv

# install the required packages to get the source from git and compile it
sudo apt-get install git libgtk2.0-dev

# as user pi in the user home directory (/home/pi), this will create a sub directory 'pqiv'
git clone https://github.com/phillipberndt/pqiv.git -b 0.12

# configure will validate all preconditions and create a platform specific make file
cd pqiv

# now it's time to make the fix in the source code
replace "gchar option;" by "gint option";
in the variables declaration of the main() function in pqiv.c.

# make and install the app
sudo make all install

# that's it, you have a fixed version of pqiv
