Preview Directory Contents in Nautilus using Gloobus Preview

Gloobus Preview is a nice preview application for Nautilus. It displays the contents of a directory when you hit the <Space Bar> with the intended directory highlighted. No matter if the directory contains music, pictures, other files or whatever, Gloobus Preview would just preview it.

Gloobus Preview is available for all the current versions of Ubuntu from the same PPA. For installation, go to a Terminal and run these commands:

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

That's all. Now you can hit <Space Bar> on any folder and the preview would be displayed.

A few simple configuration options are available by clicking the small button in the top right corner of the preview dialog.
