I have a plug with a USB Mimo monitor connected to it. Now I need an application that would display a jpg image periodically pulled from a web server.
At the moment it is working using GUI and Firefox browser in full screen mode to display an auto-refreshing web page containing the image. But the entire gui / firefox is an overkill and I do nto know how to automate the startup of all necessary components. My thinking is the described scenario can be done in a much simpler way... like a bash script with a loop containing wget to pull the jpg and then some other command (any ideas?) to render the image...
Any comments / suggestions on the above are welcome
