Downloading picture files for screen saver

– for eLux RP 6.5 and later versions –

Optionally, Scout administrators may configure direct download of picture files to the devices into the screen saver's picture directory.To do so, use the FileFetch tool, which downloads graphic files via wget.


  • The eLux package FileFetch must be installed on the devices.This may require modifications of the image definition file on the web server via ELIAS.
  • The picture files must be located in the specified directory and have the file extension .gif, .jpg or .png.The filename must be numeric.Examples: 0001.jpg, 0002.jpg, 0003.png, 0004.gif

The FileFetch tool checks on each device restart whether new picture files are available on the web server for download.
