StreetSign is a digital signage system, originally written for the TeenStreet 2013 (Germany) youth congress. It works with a single server, and multiple client computers connect over the network. It is lightweight enough that a Raspberry PI can run as the server for smaller installations.

how about making a few basic shellscripts which contain
start Xnest (or gdmXnest);
export DISPLAY=Xnest number;
sort of thing, and then gimp will, or should, apear to start up correctly within a fluxbox (or other light windowmanager) session within a "screen" or "fullscreen-window".
