Hi Roman,

thanks for the feedback!

I'm using the attached patch.

It integrates the slides along with the PDF viewer into the boot image.
This way, I am able to show the slides at any time, even without
selecting any Sculpt partition.

The slides are picked up as 'bin/slides.pdf' from the Genode build
directory when executing the script.

For toggling the visibility of the slides, the patch configures the
pseudo key KEY_PRESENTATION as global key in the nitpicker GUI server.
This key code is generated via the input-filter remap rule for F11.
