And in the other hand John Stowers has been working in Gloobus integration into nautilus, I’ll be working with him and see if we can make it work!

you can see what he has here

And to check it, follow his blog instructions John Stowers

Help Needed: Nautilus Actions

Hi guys!
I would like to ask you something,

Could anyone of you develop a nautilus extension (like nautilus-open-terminal) that launches
gloobus directory

and another one that launches

gloobus-preview directory/filename

because I would like to include it in the deb and I prefer wasting my time in the application itself I don’t think it’s hard so I hope you can help me in this.
I’ve gloobus coverflow in a very good state so in a week or two I’ll upload the deb !!! it’s amazing!! HEHEHEHE


And of course.. if you want to donate me something I would appreciate it!


Amazing, PSD and XCF support!! the fastest way to see the PSD I ever seen!!


It uses pixbuf loaders (Thanks to Pierre Slamich for making me know about it)
In the next release I’ll add all in the deb so the loaders will be installed automatically.

Here are the links to the loaders I used.

Gloobus-Preview 0.03.2 (NOW IN DEB)

If the key combo doesn’t run, just run these two command from a terminal:

gconftool-2 -s --type string /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_1 "gloobus-preview"
gconftool-2 -s --type string /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_1 "<Control>space"

Hey Guys!
