Is it possible to get a side preview pane and/or details pane in Ubuntu?

enter image description here


Gloobus preview does that and webupd8 has 2 articles on that (2nd link also has a video). From the 1st link:

Install the PPA ...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gloobus-preview

And a previewer:


sudo apt-get install gloobus-sushi
nautilus -q


sudo apt-get install nemo-gloobus-sushi
nemo -q

Press a space after selecting a file to preview it (and another space to remove the preview). Example image:

enter image description here

Only works for files smaller than 10Mb.
