How To Install

Asked by BadChoice on 2009-09-21

Covergloobus doesn't need an install, just download the tar.gz file and uncompress it wherever you want.
Then launch covergloobus-config.py (double clicking it and choose execute or from terminal python /path/to/covergloobus-config.py)

This is the configuration utility, here you can choose your theme and you player. When finished click save and you're ready to open covergloobus.py (The same way you opened covergloobus-config.py).

If you want covergloobus to be launched when you open your session just add "python /path/to/covergloobus.py" without quotes, into you start up applications.

Thats all, enjoy it and feel free to donate me something or report bugs!!

Due to recent changes the above won't work completely.
Instead of launching covergloobus-config.py, just launch CoverGloobus.py, rightclick on the cover image and select "Configure".

This is now solved in bzr, and now you can use both options.

Right click in covergloobus widget or just run covergloobus-config.py

And again some changes in bzr.
When installing from bzr run these commands:
./autogen.sh
./configure
make

And run as root:
make install

Then it'll be installed! :D

In ubuntu 10.10 the automake is not installed default, then the script not run.

I just execute a simple apt-get and it works. :D

[sudo] apt-get install automake

Add in howto this instruction, or add in script this line.
