    Hi everyone,
    I'm developing a free opensource QuickLook for linux in openGL (c++) it is a coverflow for see the in a fast way the files without opening them,

    There are the links for download, screencast and launchpad page:

    External Downloads:


    Now I have it in a very good way but there are a couple of things I would like to do and I don't know how, maybe you can help me.

    First one: How to bind space key in nautlius to launch my own nautilus-script (this will be used for bind space key to preview file)

    Second : How to add a button on the toolbar that lauches my own nautilus-script (this will be used for launch folder coverflow)

    If anyone of you know how to do this It will be one of the remaining points solved!

    Some information about:Now I can preview, any kind of images, any kind of plain text files and pdf. It supports mp3 (album coverts and song preview)
    and I'm working on video files support and plugin architecture.

    I also would like to know your ideas so this way we can make it beat apples one!!!!

    Thank you!
