Need help with Lovelace: Slideshow Card

Hello, im new with Hassio, trying to following this guide Lovelace Slideshow Card [not allowd to link becasue im new user, weird rule] to get a slideshow on my dashboard. But doing something wrong but i dont know what.

  1. Create a folder in your config directory named custom_components Check
  2. Create a folder in your custom_components named sensor Check
  3. Copy the into the sensor folder Check
  4. Add the folder sensor to your configuration.yaml file Check?
    This is what my config file looks like, i think its okey,

Configure a default setup of Home Assistant (frontend, api, etc)

Uncomment this if you are using SSL/TLS, running in Docker container, etc.

  1. Create a folder in your WWW folder named images Check
  2. Add your images to this folder Check
  3. Restart Home Assistant Check
  4. Check the sensor.images entity to see if the fileList attribute lists your image files
  5. Add a card to your ui-lovelace.yaml ← does not work

its just says No card type configured

  • type: ‘custom:slideshow-card’
    folder: sensor.images
  1. Copy slideshow-card.js to <config directory>/www/slideshow-card.js Check
  2. Add slideshow-card as a resource in ui-lovelace.yaml

If you are referring to this card, it is achieved project and it maybe the reason why it is having the error. Maybe you can try the forked version which has been updated. But i cant guarantee this also

been trying that one aswell, same error.
just want some picture rolling on my dashboard, any other ideas?

If you are looking for rolling constant images, you can create a gif and display it in lovelace using picture card.
