i've attached a .png screen capture; hopefully you can see it.
you can see that the .gz unzipped to 517 .jp2 files. i can only reason to
deal with these 517 sequential files as a slideshow .. can you think of
i can see no way to display a slide show other than 'fullscreen';
fullscreen seems to be the only way that irfanview will display a
slideshow. but fullscreen obliterates access to the the touchpad keyboard
and the iv toolbar and obliterates access to almost everything: the only
option that i can still control is 'shutdown' and 'restart'! ... nor do i
have a mouse.
although i repeatedly opted for it, the toolbar does not contain the
buttons for 'next page' and 'previous page' - even if i were able to access
