well, I love this stuff!!
Also there are still some bugs, does not preview all the movies that I have.

And I have a question: should the movies also be in thumbnails in coverflow? I just get the filetype icon...

Not yet, it is a work in progres... for now you will only get the icons for movies :D

BTW have you tried the nautilus elementary? is this coverflow integrated into nautilus!!
faillas's avatar
Yes, I have nautilus elementary + gloobus preview + gloobus flow(or cover flow or clutter view, I dont know exactly whats the difference between them.

Bug: trying to preview a movie, the player pops up and shuts down. but some movies work.
I have used this tutorial to install:

Yes.. some movies fail, it is a bug.

BTW clutter flow covergloow and gloobus-flow is the same XDDD

hello
I have problem installing it. I don't have the psd.so and xcf.so in my usr/share.....
Can you share the above files with me?

they don't have to be in usr share
Try using the last bzr version

bzr branch lp:gloobus-preview
./autogen.sh
make
sudo make install

It will install everything just fine :D

I looked on your blog, and I cannot find any instruction on how to bind the shortcut and use coverflow, even though you said that they were on your blog. How can I bind the shortcut and use coverflow?

Hey!
you can find the instructions here!

Anyway, now there's a PPA so you can install it from the repository, then you will be able to launch gloobus just pressing space!!

i have a question how can i use coverflow with compiz and emerald?
because when i use it with it the coverflow window is flickering and has no window border
thank you for your answer

JordiHP's avatar
JordiHPHobbyist Digital Artist

but when i use metacity without compositing or kwin it works with window border

Hi, guys!

Sorry for my not excellent English, i'm from Russia:). Can you help me? I installed gloobus and gloobus-preview and gloobus-preview works good, but gloobus coverflow dont want work properly.
See screenshot, please - [link]
Pictures (and other documents too) are not shown in coverfow window, there only its icons - JPG icons ((or icons of PDF, DOC documents etc).

May be, you have any ideas about it?
Thanx.

Hi again, i'm looking to customize my gloobus-preview a little bit and i'm not sure what it takes to reach my goal, or where to start. Here's a sketch of what i want my gloobus-preview to look like:[link]

Once more, thanks for your work. It's my practical and default viewer for all images :)
JordiHP's avatar
JordiHPHobbyist Digital Artist
Hey! I really like your mockup!! I think I'll try to add something like that in gloobus-preview-0.4.2 Looks really good
LIB53's avatar
Thanks! I'm glad i could contribute. :)

hello, this is a fantastic project and I'm wondering if I can undecorate the windows and put it to the center of the screen with a gradient in the background, maybe like the widget layer of compiz!
JordiHP's avatar
JordiHPHobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks!

It would be possible, I'll develop a fullscreen mode so it will be somethink like what you say ;)
