Text Sintax

Text sintaxis on!!

Gloobus now supports text highligthing for soure code files!!

Here you have the screenshoot


To install it (till there is a deb for the next version

bzr branch lp:gloobus gloobus

cd ./gloobus/gloobus-preview

./configure –prefix=/usr/ (–prefix is with double – )

make && sudo make install

Gloobus Everywhere

I’ve been working in gloobus last days again, and thinking in it I think that is time to make it work along with other apps, for example,

Thunderbird, evolution: to preview the attachments quickly
GTKFileSelector: Before upload a file, or send it to a friend, preview it, the current thumnails are really small to see what’s in, and they don’t work for pdf, music etc..
– your ideas

So I would like what you think of it, where can we include gloobus, and can you develop some extension or something to do it.
Its really easy, just make that space key, launches gloobus-preview /path/to/the/file

Nobody told me about the nautilus extension that lets gloobus be launched with space key!!!

Its really easy to install, in the previous post there are the instructions:


And remember, filetypes supported right now

XCF, PSD, MPG, AVI, MP3, PDF, DOC, ODF, XLS, PPT, ODS, CBR, CBZ, ICNS, TXT, C++, C, JPG, PNG, SVG, FOLDERS, and some more, I’ll put all them in the webpage when it’s ready!!

Now, I’ve been working on a plugin to see the sintaxis on source files, it works now, and in a few days I’ll upload it!!



Hi again! I’ve my flat ok, and I’m back of my holidays so I’m ready to work on gloobus again!!!

I want to create a project webpage but I’d like some help, do you know a free hosting? any of you wants to design the webpage? something like gnome-do (Its really good!!) I’m sure this will help people to know about gloobus.

The second and really interesting: KitKat had developed a patch for nautilus that LAUNCHES GLOOBUS-PREVIEW WITH THE SPACE KEY!! I tried it with my both computers and it works perfectly!

To install it

download the lastest stable nautilus:

Download kitkat patch (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=7837548#post7837548)

tar zxvf archive.tar.gz
cd nautilus-2.26.3
patch -p1 < /path_to_my_patch

u ll see the files been patched here

all u have to do is compile nautilus now:

./configure --prefix=/usr


In my ./configure it asked for unique-1.0, so I installed that lib:

apt-get install libunique

Maybe your ./configure asks for more libs, install them all to be able to compile nautilus.

at this step u can already test nautilus by lauching it (close it before if is runing with

nautilus -q

without deleting your distribution version
if u like the patch u can do a make install too

Today I’ll try to solve some bugs in the bugtrack so I familiarize with the code again and then I’ll try to add some new things!!

See you!
