Sheesh. 54 pages!!! Can someone tell me briefly how to get this running on Ubuntu 9.10? I've installed from PPA but am stuck at that point.
Never mind, I found out how at https://answers.launchpad.net/gloobus/+question/83626 and have it running.
However, I fail to see any advantage to this program. Opening files in "preview" is really no faster than opening them with the default program!
Well, try opening a video or pdf, or a openoffice file, or a xcf or psd file.
Anyway If you prefer opening them in the default app, you're free to use of course
I really like this program. The only problem I have with it right now is that I cannot use it with samba shares in Nautilus.
First of all, this is very good for Ubuntu. Congrats and thanks!
Now, my question:
Is Cover flow, right now worked with Karmic?; How can I activate it so that it works with Gloobus preview?

Ctrl+Space doesn't initialise coverflow, it just exits.
It seems as if the space bar is used to open & close the application, and also from the limited information I could find, to initialise coverflow. Could it be conflicting?Code:surt@muspell:~$ gloobus-preview img/02033_sunriseinareeiro_1920x1080.jpg CONTENT FOLDER: ./img Actual file number: 0 Mime Type: image/jpeg Creating Plugin Class: image IMAGE (iPhoto) Creating iPhoto...

Feature idea... what about renaming previewed files by clicking on the top of the gloobus?

coverflow is not a plugin, it's a different program (an experimentation) it's not available in any ppa. If u want to try it u have to compile it, see gloobus.net for more detail.
Hi - really sorry to ask this, I must be missing something obvious but I cannnot get this workng at all, I installed the repositry and app via ubuntu tweak, when i click on the app in the menu nothing happens and when i hit space over a document it launches in the program itself - thanks for any hep, this looks good.
