Photo Screen Saver is an OpenGL application that will slide different images which are taken from www.flickr.com site.

They are downloaded by the script /usr/pluto/bin/flickr.pl The params of that script are: minwidth, minheight, and which number of previous days should be searched.

The all files are downloaded by at the folder /home/flickr/[year]/[mount]/[day]

After the script saves some files the PhotoScreenSaver (PSS) is started.

PSS is a child device of Orbiter which means that will get different parameters from the admin page and will be started/stopped by Orbiter itself.

What is the normal flow of PSS?

1. Initialization

2. Animation thread

3. Finalization
