I noticed in the options for pictures there are options for slide shows. But I can't seem to find how to start a slide show. When I open a picture it opens full screen and just stays there indefinitely. Do I need to press something else to make it automatically switch between pictures?

Just press the Play button on your remote, or press enter twice on your keyboard when you are on an image. The space bar works to play pause music in the slideshow mode...

Listening to a podcast/last.fm or my music while I do a flickr slide show is one of my favorite uses of boxee!

I've got it to work but not how you describe. I have to press Enter to bring up the picture fullscreen, then hit spacebar to start the slideshow, spacebar again to pause the slideslow. Pressing enter more than once has no effect.

I'm just using a nilla installation of Boxee under Linux so why would my controls be different? :confused:
