Photo Slideshow in Ubuntu

Here are a couple tools to start a photo slideshow in Linux.


My favorite is this lightweight cli, called feh.


sudo apt install feh

Point the command at a directory with photos:

feh -F ~/my/photos

-F is for fullscreen, containing larger photos in the viewport.

Use arrow keys to navigate through photos. q to quit.


Shotwell is a GUI that can act as an album keeper and editor in addition to a slideshow.


sudo apt install shotwell
  • Import photos

  • Rotate as needed

  • F5 to start slideshow

  • Or View > Slideshow

What others?
