Think I saw a similar request from you on the DigiKam list, 
actually I once proposed including a function in a 
Kipi-plugin for slideshows which would be useful in your 

As an (old/ex) Windows user, I often used the slideshow 
feature in IrfanView to organise/order a pool of photos. The 
resulting order then could be saved as a plain text file.

IrfanView should be known to most graphics oriented 
Win-folks, maybe it can run in Wine ?

Not sure if I've seen this elsewhere.
