DVD Slideshow Creator

Postby kwisher on Sun Jul 12, 2009 2:27 pm

Just found this cool software package and thought I would share it with everyone. I was looking for a way to use Linux to create a picture sideshow for my upcoming high school class reunion and have tried numerous packages but this one looks to be the best.

Enjoy.
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You need to download and install two deb packages:
smile-data_0.9.9-1~ppa5_all.deb & smile_0.9.9-1~ppa5_i386.deb, or you can add the repo's as per the instructions. After manually installing the deb packages, there is a n icon in the "Sound & Vido" menu section.
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

thank you- that helped

now i have to check it out a bit more - but at first glance it is not so versatile as proshow gold (windows)

i still haven't find a linux alternative for proshow gold (windows)

this is a good start but needs some more work
