View Full Version : Info-screen software for ubuntu

September 30th, 2008, 08:25 AM

Not sure if this is the right category, but couldn't find anyone that seemed the right one, so a general category seemed ok. Please move if a more correct category exists.

I'm looking for a "Info-Screen" program for Ubuntu. It is to be used for displaying various information slides and videos on a wall-mounted screen.

Would be great if the program can handle slide formats such as ppt, odp and pdf, and all the standard videoformats, and can handle easy customization of what to be displayed via f.ex. a drag-and drop list or such. Support for remote customization via f.es. ssh would also be great.

Any hints on where to find such a program, or if it even exists? I've found a proprietary windows program (Dynamic Info Screen 8.1.0) that I think does what I want, but I'd rather use an ubuntu program.

thanks for your help!
