If you, for example, only show filenames in the slideshow, the filename seems to appear almost in the middle of the screen.
This is because we have too much space under the filename label, because it is reserved for the slideshow toolbar that may appear here if the mouse cursor is moved to the bottom left.
I would not display the toolbar in every corner of the screen, it only should be visible in the top left and top right corner. Therefore we could move the image info to the bottom of the screen.
Furthermore it would be nice if we implement a toolbar that also displays the thumbnails of all images in the slideshow, as in gwenview, to have more control over the slideshow.
The attached patch only disables the bottom left and bottom right corners for the toolbar and moves the image info to the bottom of the screen (e.g. if only filenames are displayed).
What do you think?

patch for bug 302422
I did what Andi proposed on a fresh cloned digikam. So I guess it should work.
However, I spoke with Gilles and I know it could be done even better. But it is my first trial to solve something in digikam, so I hope there is no problem I posted this patch.
