Gloobus is a preview software that lets you view files so quickly without having to open them in their normal software. Its based on apples quicklook and it has 2 main options. The coverflow effect for a folder and the preview window for the files.

Gloobus Preview version 0.4.1 already released that some of the new function is a support for Karmic Koala. To install Gloobus 0.4.1, you need to insert this following PPA into your software sources: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/tualatrix/gl... karmic main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/tualatrix/gl... karmic main
also don't forget to add the gpg key Or download it here: http://launchpad.net/gloobus/gloobus-...

The first main impression of Gloobus is its really suitable for Linux users because it allowed Linux users to preview their files, videos (like avi, wmv), musics like (mp3, wma, mp4), or even office files.

Installing From Source (Internet Access Required)

You have to install Bazaar and its dependencies.

sudo apt-get install build-essentials automake libtool bzr

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libgvfscommon-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev libcairomm-1.0-dev libtag1-dev libpoppler-glib-dev libgnomeui-2.0-dev unoconv libtag-dev libgtksourceview2.0-dev

sudo apt-get install
Download the latest version of Clutter:

http://www.clutter-project.org/source...

Untar it (right click extract here)

Compile and install it:

./configure
make
sudo make install
Download the latest version of clutter-gtk:

Untar it (right click extract here)

Compile and install it:

./configure

Download Gloobus with:

bzr branch lp:~gloobus-dev/gloobus/Gloobus-0.4
Lets fix libtag-dev

sudo gedit /usr/include/taglib/attachedpictureframe.h

Then, lets fix a path in gtksourceview:

sudo ln -s /usr/include/gtksourceview-2.0/gtksourceview/ /usr/include/gtksourceview
Finally you can install gloobus-preview and its plugins:

cd Gloobus-0.4/Gloobus-Preview/
./configure --prefix=/usr/
make && sudo make install

cd ..
cd Gloobus-Coverflow
./configure
make
make install
We need to copy two images to /usr/share/gloobus:

In the bzr gloobus-preview/DATA there should be two images: close_button.png and gloobus_button.png. Well copy them.

cd DATA
sudo cp *.png /usr/share/gloobus/
And finally lets update the path:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
