I've been looking for a tool that either works or can be customized for the following task.
My end goal is to use the terminal to open, and navigate through some folder containing pictures. The behavior I'm looking for is similar to mplayer, where the user can submit input via the terminal to the display window.
More specifically, I'd like to pass in /home/parrot/Pictures/* as an argument to some CLI program. The program opens the first photo and awaits input, using some key ( presumably arrow key) the program tells the display window to get the next photo.
I've looked into and also been recommended to feh, but the program doesn't appear to solve this issue. While it does run in the background I attempted and failed at getting the next photo through a series of random key pressing. I also looked into its action key functionality but those only apply to its displayed window and not the terminal.
Has anyone already figured out such a set up? Have my google search skills failed me?
- Open picture1.png in some image viewer at the terminal
- Press arrow key -in the terminal-
- Picture2.png is now displayed in the image viewer
