I know this is more of a Mythtv question but I've been searching for 2 days and can't find the answer. Does anyone know how I can configure Mythgallery slideshow to automaticly show my photos when the menu is idle for a while? Thanks :confused:

I don't think that mythgallery. More likely, it is gnome-screensaver that you want to setup to do that.

Thanks. Is gnome-screensaver what is currently being used to put my monitor in standbye mode now?

Hmm. Putting your monitor into standby is probably DPMS There are 2 screensaver solutions xscreensaver and gnome-screensaver. I think you can do the picture gallery from gnome screensaver.

Both xscreensaver and gnome screensaver have photo slideshow.
My experience is with Ubuntu 10.04 that gnome screensaver is installed automatically. It has limited features...
I typically install the xscreensaver because with it's photo slideshow I can define the photo folder.
