I have script with command

fbi -t 10 -T 2 $(find /images -iname "*.jpg" ) 

Its start fbi with good looking process with proper filenames because i compared with command:

fbi -t 10 -T 2 *.jpg

But this process from script die after couple of seconds (random time) and from the begining dont display image.

Any ideas?

  • run $(find /images -iname "*.jpg" ) and then append that to fbi -t 10 -T 2 and see what you get. *.jpg will get expanded by the shell, the find command results might be quite different. As this is fbi presumably you are running this without X? – rob Mar 27 '17 at 12:46
  • Good point i will try that i didnt check the both process at the same time. And yes i dont using X. – Paweł Glica Mar 27 '17 at 15:58

  • Its look like the command with find die after time in parameter (10 sec) so i think the problem im somehow related with input from "find" because fbi cannot jump to another file ? – Paweł Glica Mar 28 '17 at 8:49
  • i haven't got fbi installed anywhere at the moment, try man fbi and fbi --help to see if there is a specific syntax that must be used for multiple files – rob Mar 28 '17 at 15:16

This guy uses a similar command.

fbi -noverbose -m 640x480 -a -u -t 6 /home/pi/art/**/*

I was trying to understand what it was to see if it could be used without the flickr API when i came across your question. Maybe you can make more sense of it than I could.
