Gloobus - The future of Linux file managers.

how many of you familiar with MAC OS X?

today I am trying to introduce a new (little bit old :) but new for me) fancy software. it's just Gloobus. Gloobus is a extension for Gnome to visualize Mac OS like File Browser. If you are not familier with Mac OS see this video.

The special fature of Gloobus is supportable of various file extensions. currently it supports to TXT , PDF, JPG, BMP, GIF, PNG, PSD, MP3, OGG, MPG, WMV, XCF file types.

you can see more videos from here.

currently gloobus is under development. now you can download Gloobus 0.4. Still it has many bugs. it is not compleatly embeded to Nautilus. One solution is Clutter which is developing by John Stowers. see his blog.

Follow ubuntu Brainstorm and Gloobus blog for more details.

download Gloobus.
Extract File.
go to extracted directory.
if your architecture i386 then go to i386. otherwise amd64
install gloobus-preview___.deb then gloobus___.deb (simply double click or use " sudo dpkg -i " in terminal)

Here is mine. :)
