display image on screen (gnome/gtk2)
I'm trying to customize the various screen messages (like changing brightness) on my laptop. When I press on the "brightness up" button, I want an image displayed on the screen for a certain period of time (about 1 second).
I am as far as beeing able to run scripts/programs when I press the certain buttons (including all needed information) ...
whats the easiest possibility to display an image in front of the screen (on top of all windows etc) for a certain period of time? Is there an application that does this? Are there any libraries I can use to easily program this in a scripting language? Or do I have to get down and dirty with gtk programming in c? I'm pretty new to linux and would appreciate some suggestions from the pro's :)
It should run on Gnome / gtk2 since my distro is ubuntu 6.06
Thanks for any help or tipps!
(my preferred image format is .svg, although I could live with any other format)
