    Re: Gloobus, a QuickLook for linux

    I talked with nautilus people and well, it seems that is not possible right now to add something like gloobus (coverflow there) but I think that with this new version is possible to add key bindings and toolbar buttons.

    I would appreciate if any of you can help me with this, just bind space key to launch

    preview <filename>

    where filename is the file selected in nautilus

    and add a two toolbar buttons un for coverflow (gloobus <floder>) and one for preview (preview <filename>)

    If you can work it out please!! tell me! it will be one of best improvments on the application!

    Now I'm very focused on making preview a very good application, redesign plugins to make it very easy to build one (yes!! very easy!!!!!!!!) and then I'll port gloobus to gtk + cairo + gtkglext using the same new plugins!!

    I'll post on how to make plugins in the blog when I have it well perfiled!

    I Hope we can improve it a lot!

    They've managed to embed a widget right where we want it to be:

    Have a look at the code. It can be switched on and off. That seems very promising. All that it would take would be to replace the timeline by the OpenGL thingie.
    I don't know if it's as simple as changing an image link in HTML, but that seems doable

    Yes!! they have done it! It will be great If you can help me with this, I have no much time now and I prefer to develop gloobus and preview (now I'm redesigning preview to make it all esier) maybe we can talk to them and ask help!! but yes, this will do the trik!

    Then just need for key binding!!

    Re: Gloobus, a QuickLook for linux

    Hi Again!!

    Progress in the new preview application!!

    Now I can load MP3 and render text in a scrollable window, this text can be colored if a parser is used (I won’t do this by now, so if anyone of you wants… there is a plugin for osx quicklook that does it.. I just need a gtkbuffertext) i can be coded as a plugin.

    When I have all this more stable I’ll post a developer guide on how to develop plugins, like I said now is very easy!!!! very very, for example, to develop a plugin that just shows an image (gimp, psd or whatever) the plugin must inhert the class iImage and develop the funciton GtkPixbuf * get_pixbuf(); easy as this!!

    For a text, the same, just develop a plugin that inherts iText and has the a function GtkTextBuffer * get_text_buffer();

    For Mp3.. well two more functions inhert class iMusic and have get_pixbuf(); play_music(), stop_music(), get_artist(), get_album()… do you get it?

    You can see the screenshots in the blog:

    this is so cool!
    just a little aestetic suggestion on the scrollbars. lose the dark part above and left of the scrollbars and make scrollbars show only when there is a need for them.
    are you using scrollbars of the current theme or are they hardcoded in? it would be far nicer if all scrollbars would follow the gnome theme.

    also on the widget theme the sun devs coded in. i don't see how it would be useful for us to have coverflow there. can it be added in the folder view? like when you try do burn something with nautilus or open trash there is a panel thingy. could we expand it vertically and put coverflow there?

    here is a screenshot of the panel thingy

    NEW GLOOBUS-PREVIEW FIRST RELEASE JUST FOR TESTING
    Hello!

    I’ve uploaded the first release of new preview, I call it gloobus-preview to differ from the old preview.

    This is just a first version just for testing and find bugs!! there are not so many features but I hope to get the same funcitonality as I had with the old, but now, using more common libraries, reusing a lot of code, the new architecture is a lot better than the previous.

    I’ve added a default plugin that will try to load any filetype, and show its default theme icon there are still some errors but its really nice. This default plugin also search if there is a thumnail for the file (with gnome-thumbnail) and uses it , also really nice!!

    You can download it from launchpad

    http://launchpad.net/gloobus

    I hope you enjoy it!


    remeber you can donate =)

    ------------------------------------------------

    The scrollbars are from theme, like the icons when no plugin for the filetype is found

    Unfortunately, trying to install using the getdeb package produces the error as attached screenshot. Synaptic will not resolve the dependency. I'm running 8.10 Beta (with all current updates).

    Got no answer so far on this blog:
    http://blogs.sun.com/erwann/entry/zf...he_desktop_zfs
    and this blog:
    http://aruiz.typepad.com/siliconisla...eet-users.html

    There's a link to the patch to Nautilus which is actually not that long.
    Perhaps contacting the nautilus-list talking of the refactoring and asking help to integrate with the patch would receive more success thatn the previous attempt.
