And yes, I've hidden any messages other then errors since I don't use autologin. But if that's a think people use I'll check it out as soon as I get to it.

The long version: I'm using ajax requests (XMLHttpRequest) to retrieve the config files and it's curious enough that that works. Browsers are very restrictive about accessing local files, for obvious reasons. The engine behind MDM's HTML themes (webkit) is basically just a browser showing a local document. The fact that it's all local is why the request are getting through at all. However XMLHttpRequests are specifically designed to retrieve individual files from a given path (or rather a URL) so they simply cannot retrieve a directory listing. The only way to make that possible would be ton run a local webserver in the background that provides that list, which would be quite an overkill.
So yeah, you're stuck with ls -1 >> slideshow.conf.
As for the auto login, I'll take a look at it as soon as I get to it (hopefully in a few days).
+ mdm: new theme based on mdm-modern, with slideshow

Gotta try and catch him on the IRC some time.
So I pushed an update to the github repo. It now has a countdown indicator in the top bar next to the sessions menu. It's not too fancy but should do the job.
The fact that it just resets on every keystroke confused me a little but that's just how MDM handles it. Personally I'd have expected the countdown to be stopped on first interaction.

Though again, if this is gonna get more attention I can add it easy enough.
Last but not least, as mentioned in the introduction, the Mint-X theme received a beautiful new slideshow. A new developer, Philipp Miller, created a flexible and adaptable theme called MDModern, full of innovations and elegance from which was inspired this slideshow and which could be used by artists to produce the next generation of MDM themes.
The team is currently working with Philipp, not only on the theme but on the MDM theme API and we’re hoping to add MDModern to Linux Mint 17.1.
