PSD and XCF howto!

Hey!
It’s been a long time since I wrote something here.

Well, today I’ve been working on gloobus-preview again, and well, I added a couple of things that cahrgr started, like that now plugins can handle key events,

So I added that iDocument and iText now have Pg Up and PG Down, and iText you can make the text bigger or smaller with + and – keys (almost everything thanks to cahrgr)

Then, I had problems with the PSD and XCF loaders a few days ago, and if its your problem you can solve it basically doing this:


sudo rm /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-psd*
sudo rm /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-xcf*

And then going to the download gloobus-preview source

cd src/loaders
sudo cp ./PSD/*.so /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/
sudo cp ./XCF/*.so /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/


gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-psd.so | sudo tee /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loader-files.d/gdk-pixbuf-psd.loaders

gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-xcf.so | sudo tee /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loader-files.d/gdk-pixbuf-xcf.loaders

That’s all!!

I’ll try to add some new things in Gloobus Preview again, so we can improve it even more!

We’re all ears to your suggestions ;)
