You look, I have installed the version 12.10 of the Ubuntu and try to install the Gloobus Preview, but when I finished and started to use it, any file was opening with it. The files opened totally no view. What happened? if I wonder because of the new version?

hmm, as far I know there is no ppa for gloobus previewer for 12.10. How did you install it? – user43484 Oct 31 '12 at 11:37

Well, Ubuntu Precise users can install it by simply running the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gloobus-dev/gloobus-preview
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gloobus-preview gloobus-sushi

If you want to enable to open LibreOffice or OpenOffice documents with Gloobus Preview, install this additional package:

sudo apt-get install unoconv

If you want to install it offline... you can download the deb from the following link

after installing it in elementaryos based on precise, I've had trouble actually using it. The space bar just seems to open files instead of opening them in gloobus. – Joshua Robison Jan 8 '14 at 14:05
