nautilus-simplified-gloobus is dead, long live to nautilus-elementary!

Hello all,

In september, Nautilus-simplified-gloobus arrived in our ppa during 2 weeks, u loved it, u hated it but it didn’t leave you indifferent.
I am sure many ppl would like his return now. I am an arch user so i maintained it all along in arch repository. This morning i digged into the ubuntu’s packaging procedures and builded my first package. And guess what it’s now available in a ppa!

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:am-monkeyd/nautilus-elementary-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

So u can choose to add this ppa, then it will upgrade your nautilus automatically to the lastest stable patched version 2.28.4. Guess what in ubuntu they are still in 2.28.1. So u benefit from the latest stable version avalaible. If u want to remove it it’s pretty simple just remove the ppa then re-install nautilus.

It’s the same version than September nothing new, but i am motivated again to resume the development of this version. I am gonna work with DanRabbit and everybody who want to join us of course. A branch has been openened on launchpad, feel free to report bugs:

There would be improvements soon, enjoy 🙂
