I would like to run a File explorer or a simple GUI without running the whole desktop gui. I want to use my Raspberry Pi as a simple dvd player, which run files by omxplayer command. video will be stored in memory card itself and have a very simple GUI for controlling this task with a few buttons. I don't want to install and run the whole desktop gui, because this will slow down the Pi.
I have installed raspbian jessie lite. and with omxplayer command i can run video file and display on screen.
now I want to give access to user which file to play. for that I want simple gui, which shows files on screen. User will use arrow key, enter key, and back space key, to select the file, once enter key be pressed, video should play.
How might I accomplish this?
