First install the gphotoframe application with the command :

sudo yum install gphotoframe

and if you want gnome-screensaver compatibility then install the package gphotoframe-gss also.

Gnome Photo Frame is a photo frame gadget for the <a class="zem_slink" title="GNOME" rel="homepage" href="http://www.gnome.org/">GNOME Desktop. Let&#8217;s see how this works.. run the command gphotoframe from a terminal:

Here is what you will see :
