Joggler Screen Saver

Post by pete » Mon Apr 08, 2019 3:43 pm

Looking for an easy way to turn a Joggler (unmodified) in to a screen saver. All I want is SSH to be able to copy pictures to it.

IE: such that when it boots up it goes directly to a screen saver...no menu nothing else...

This is a little project for gifting Jogglers.

Thank you Gary.

Yes looking to utilize the Joggler only for this endeavor. 1Gb eMMC for the OS with a minimal or no Linux GUI and the Joggler tabletop will access a share on a Windows 10 desktop which is on all of the time (resting though).

Might start with Buzz's minimum server build and go from there...

I did this for a video demo at OggCamp last year... I might still have the image around somewhere, though it may only have been set up for MP4s.

Thank you Andy.

Yes; just want to have a 24/7 screen saver on the Joggler and do a cron job to shut off the screen after hours for mom (~90) here.

Pictures will be either a share or usb stick and access to update will be remote SSH.
