Gloobus Flow

Hey Guys!
I was wanted to show you this:

Amazing isn’t it?
we’ve been working in the integration of gloobus-flow into nautilus and yeah! its working pretty well now! there are still a lot of things to do/solve, so anybody interested in reporting bugs and these things you know,

In the other hand, to keep us motivated you can still donate us something by going to and you your aportation to free software. And if you know how to code and want to help us fixing little things, talk with us at #gloobus in

I hope you like it and we’re waiting for you comments!!

Gloobus Webpage and new features is now active!!

This will be a centralized point with the information of gloobus, a good description, how to install it, its plugins, how to help us in developing for it and so on, so come on, take a look at it!!

In the other hand, I have 3 new features in gloobus:

1. Translations, thanks for translating gloobus, now in the BZR version translations are working pretty good, I’ll integrate in the ppa really soon!

2. List plugins now uses a gtkTreeView, its the typical gtk view for the lists, it looks much more better than the old way, and now you can sort items by columns 😀

3. Compressed files plugins! It shows a list of the files inside a compressed file. It now supports zip, rar and tar.gz, anyway its really easy to add more filetypes, just send me the command to list the files of a compressed file and I’ll add it (eg: tar -zxf file.tar.gz)

See you!

Gloobus On Fire

While I’ve been working on gloobus preview, kitkat has done some incredible things to gloobus (coverflow). He call his branch gloobus on fire, and as you’ll see on the next video, it’s really on fire!!!!

Note: It is experimental but you can test it here:
bzr branch lp:~am-monkeyd/+junk/gloobus_on_fire

After this exiting video, I’ll tell you more news about gloobus.

Next week its gonna be released the 0.4.1 version (gloobus-preview) that fixes all bugs reported in 0.4 It will be compatible with karmic. There will be nautilus 0.28 patched to, we’ll distribute the normal version and offer the simplified one in another branch so this way there are the two versions.

And remember that you can donate to this incredible project (link in the right bar)

Looking forward to 0.4.1

Hi People!

I’ve been working so hard these days!! and gloobus-0.4.1 is almost ready to be released, This is just a bug fixing version so it will run much more fine in your computers!

Martin Cesare has been helping me in developing the web and we have it almost finished, I hope we can synchronize web release with 0.4.1 release 😀 anyway, we need a hosting (now we own domain) so if you own a hosting or know a good one, we’re all ears.

Anyway, I’ve been working in covergloobus ( again, I think it needs some love to make it even more useful! Like adding screenshots on the config for a easy theme selection, more lyrics engines, more players supported, and more things, again, if you have any idea to add, please, tell me or just fill up a blueprint 😀

I just wanted to say thanks to you all for you support with my last gloobus version and say that I’ll keep working on it. Looking forward to 0.4.2 version that will have great new features!!!

And of course, remeber that you can support us donating something at:

A lot of work done these days :D

Hi again, another week, a lot of work done and another feature!

I’ve renamed almost evque ery file in the code so now they follow a more standard rule. I’ve enchanced makefiles and KikKat helped me to solve some Coverflow gloobus (Appeared after porting it to clutter-1.2 and clutter-gtk-0.10)

I’ve created a new interface iFree, that lets the plugin do whatever it wants, without being defined for the parent interface, it will be usefull for plugins that are not movie, images, audio document or text, for example…

TTF Font files preview

Here you have a demo video!


You can get it from the bzr, or wait till the next release 😉


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:…-2.26.3.tar.gz

Download kitkat patch (

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!

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!

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!
I’ve released a new version of gloobus-preview, now in deb package so it’s very easy to install. And it adds the keybinding too!

– Create GloobusWin class so now its easy to create windows
