PPA Repository

Asked by Paul Gupta on 2009-06-05

TualatriX (Ubuntu Tweak) had setted up a Gloobus PPA!!


So, to install gloobus from the ppa:

Add these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/tualatrix/gloobus/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/tualatrix/gloobus/ubuntu jaunty main

Then add the key

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys FE85409EEAB40ECCB65740816AF0E1940624A220

Update packages list
sudo apt-get update

Install gloobus-preview
sudo apt-get install gloobus-preview
sudo apt-get upgrade (To upgrade to the patched nautilus)

Finally, restart nautilus
nautilus -q
nautilus &


Can a PPA repository be added for this project?

I would like to see one, I would like to help test this fantastic looking software, but I'm not much of a coder.

As a photographer, I used Quick Look on mac every day. I just had my mac stolen and miss this feature so dearly.

Thank you.

I'm looking to make it, I've ported gloobus to use autotools (./configure && make && make install)

If you know anybody that can help me with this I would appreciate it.

By the way, have you tested gloobus-preview? there is a deb package now at


See you!
