Good day

Past from Mandriva 2008 to Mandriva 2009 in French (sorry for the translation)
Right click on desktop = desk configuration - Plasma work space
There is 3 choices : image/slide show/ nothing (nil, none)

In Mandriva 2008 there was a possibility of creating our personnal slide show
In the Mandriva 2009 how do we do this, since there is nothing in Plasma work space to click on to create our personnal slideshow with our personnal pictures.
Regards

Hello Gill

On my machine the options only show after you have selected slideshow from the menu.

Like this...

From there you should be able to add your own folders to be shown.

I'm using opensuse and KDE4.2.

Cheers

Hello T
I am using Mandriva PowerPack 2009 KDE 4.1
My Desktop setting, is about the same, in the 2008 Linux Mandriva , there was a button that you click on (Create your slide show) we do not have that on the 2009
I did 2 test, creating a folder with pictures, then click (Add folder) notnhing happen.
The second test, I save the folder under (usr/share/wallpapers/slide show.
Result, I see the pictures in the little screen in Desktop Setting but not on my screen.
Regards

It sounds like the extra options were not available in 4.1
(I can't remember, I run 4.2 on all my machines)

It might be worth thinking about updating to 4.2.

It looks like packages for mandriva are now available
Instructions can be found here

Cheers
