Gloobus Comming To Nautilus

It's been a while since I wrote about Gloobus, and since then Gloobus has come a long way. Recently John Stowers has been working on Gloobus integration into nautilus.

There's still some bugs to work out, but the future looks very slick and clutter(ish).

If you don't already know, Gloobus is an extension of Gnome designed to enable a full screen preview of any kind of file. Currently, Gloobus supports TXT , PDF, JPG, BMP, GIF, PNG, PSD, MP3, OGG, MPG, WMV, XCF. It has a sleek black interface which will put your files in focus.

The Gloobus project needs documentation writers, translators, programmers, hackers, evangelists. If you don't have time to help, you can also...



  1. Oh no, speedup nautilus on large file set, then integrate this crap!

  2. This is just ignorant.

    How long are we going to have to sit through wave after wave of completely inept coders ripping off OSX?

    Flagrant copycatting is not only tacky, cheesy, cornball, and symptomatic of a dead creative culture, but it is also opening up all of a project to a legal patent mire.

    The developer should be taken out back and put down.

  3. why the hell do u speak like that about others work.. u fucking trolls, why dont u try to program something by
    urselves.. nobody is obligating you to use this..
    keep up the good work..
    c ya

  4. Cheers, augusto!
    I agree a little bit with troy-sobotka: we should first focus in developing original stuff, more than copying Mac and Win. But, we've made a long way each time we take their things and go further. Still, this is creative space and there are tons of developers who are going make something new and better from this.
    And, whoever doesn't like this... don't use it! this is the freedom of free software.
