    Gloobus Preview not working in Oneiric !\.

    Hey there,
    After I upgraded to 11.10, Gloobus Preview which worked nicely on natty isn't functioning anymore. I was using it along nautilus-elementary but now when I press SPACE on a file or folder nothing happens!!
    By the way, when I run gloobus-preview from terminal (or from dash) it shows my home directory in preview, but none when I press SPACE on a file/folder.
    Any help would be appreciated since I was thoroughly enjoying gloobus' handy features! \.

    You could test Sushi , is the previewer what I am using in Oneiric since Nautilus no longer previews audio files.Sushi is capable of previewing sound and video files ,pictures and some documents.
    ( Features are less than Gloobus Preview , but it could be useful )

    I have Sushi installed in my brand new ubuntu 11.10 but it's not working with any .doc .odt .xls etc files. Only .txt videos and music.
    Any idea??

    Thanks for you attention

    I think the problem with Gloobus Preview is it's not compatible with nautilus 3.2 -upgraded form 2.x from natty..
    I have the same problem and I think "downgrading" nautilus is sth we could try...haven't done it though, but I'll let you know if it worked! \.

    I hope it's not too late and still haven't done any serious damages while trying to downgrade your nautilus!!
    But Gloobus Preview's newer version is available which works very well and stably under nautilus 3.2..
    Simply try:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gloobus-dev/gloobus-preview
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install gloobus-preview gloobus-sushi libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev
    Take Care\.
