Displaying Images

You can display every day images such as GIFs, JPGs, BMPs, etc on the screen. To do this we'll install fbi which is the frame buffer image viewer (not to be confused with the FBI agency!)

sudo apt-get install fbi will install it
Grab our lovely wallpaper with
wget http://adafruit-download.s3.amazonaws.com/adapiluv320x240.jpg
and view it with
sudo fbi -T 2 -d /dev/fb1 -noverbose -a adapiluv320x240.jpg
That's it!
