eog --fullscreen --slide-show $ORDNER1/out/

In have in my /out folder animated GIF files and I'd like to show all files as a slide show. EOG has a fix time between slides but my animations are longer. EOG cut the animation in the middle an start the next one. How can I can control delay between slides in a slideshow from command line?

EOG has 5 seconds time delay between the slides in fullscreen mode. This parameter can be edited with dconf, schema name: org.gnome.eog.fullscreen, key seconds. Or using gsettings:

gsettings set org.gnome.eog.fullscreen seconds N

where N is new interval. 0 disables automatic browsing.
Also the same settings can be adjusted in EOG menu, in Edit > Preferences | Slideshow.
