I new about Digikam, I assumed though it was not full free software so I
have used "geotag" instead, works well. It uses the browser Chromium to
display Googleearth showing the location. Geotag can also do much more.

There's a cleaner way to do the above using "exiftags"
zlinw@wolflianli:~/images$ exiftags 20090128_111751-043.jpg | grep itude

My main purpose for the post though was to try and identify a particular
program which I KNOW does this. I can visualise the actual screen layout
but dammed if I can remember its name. Geotag does a job much closer to
what I really require though. It has been educational!.
Many thanks for the replies, What I did was just put up a post saying
Firefox was required. There was half dozen responses saying no problems, no
one replied it was not acceptable.
The slide show now has been up now for around 8 hours there have been more
than 30 downloads and no one has said anything, so it must be OK. My
experience on such things is that people will complain if theres a problem
but most will say nothing if its OK, ie one needs to consider it a
broadcast situation. If feedback is required the audience will have to be
pressed in some way. A classic method widely used particularly in broadcast
radio is to broadcast a delibrate mistake. I have used this in the past
under similiar situations, works perfectly.
I am putting together a slide show of a large engineering project. S5 is
the framework being used "http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/". The slide
works great under Firefox, but its quite unexecptable under Microsofts
Explorer. As the majority of the target audence would almost certainly be
running windows, I appear to have a problem.
THe way the slide show works is one changes frames with the page up/down
keys. The frame is divided into three sections. The top section containing
the comments to go with the image, the middle portion is the image, the
lower section containing the overall title. Explorer takes no notice of
this formating, not even using the selected fonts just displays a series of
images with text in between them using whatever default font Exlploer has.
Unfortunately although now running Linux for around 20 years I no nothing
about web programming, or in this case xhtml and css what ever they are?
Anything I can do? Help would very much be apreciated.
