I'm on 11.04 64bit and want to change my default file manager from nautilus to nautilus elementary via PPA to keep it (Elementary) regularly updated.

I always want to know if Gloobus coverflow and preview works in 11.04 and if it works steps involved? Thanks in advance

The nautilus-elementary PPA has been upgraded for the 11.04 release. Simply add the following PPA and upgrade (graphical PPA instructions):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:am-monkeyd/nautilus-elementary-ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Coverflow is incorporated into nautilus-elementary. Just press F4. gloobus-preview packages are provided in that same PPA.

Will your answer automatically remove nautilus and install nautilus-elementary or upgrade nautilus to nautilus-elementary. Thanks very much for your answer – Mysterio Apr 7 '11 at 17:34
