GKrellKam is an image viewer plugin for GKrellM.
It displays a periodically updated image, such as a static webcam picture, scaled to fit in a panel.
In the screen shot to the left, GKrellKam is the pictures above the moon clock. The top is a scaled picture of the building where I work, periodically downloaded from a webcam and updated onscreen.
Keeping tabs on a webcam is only one of GKrellKam's uses, however.
Each panel can be associated with an image URL, a local image filename, a list of image filenames and URLs, or a script that will be called to get a fresh image.
The images can be nearly any format or size. GKrellKam will make them small enough to fit in the panel, and after N seconds, it will check its source again.
The lower panel in the screen shot is rotating some pictures of my friends.
You can also set up a script to choose the next picture.
GKrellKam can launch an image viewer to show you the unscaled version of the current image when you click on the panel.
If you right-click, it will trigger an immediate update. GKrellKam is very event-driven so it uses up as little CPU time as possible.
