sushi for ubuntu oneiric

Sushi previewer is now available in the Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot repositories!

Sushi is a new GNOME 3.2 tool similar to Gloobus Preview that provides quick file previews. To use it, select a file in Nautilus and then press the SPACE bar.

Sushi works with both Unity and GNOME Shell and it actually doesn't depend on Nautilus so other file managers can make use of it.

Sushi is GtkClutter and Javascript-based and supports all kind of files like images, documents, PDFs, fonts, sound (by the way, you can't preview sound files by hovering them in Nautilus 3.2 like in older Nautilus versions) and video files, some text files and more.

To install Sushi Previewer on Ubuntu/Linux Mint open Terminal and copy the following command in the Terminal:

To use it, select a file (like a picture, sound file, etc.) and press the SPACE key. To close the preview, you can either press the SPACE key again or click the close button.
Note: after installing it, you may need to run "gnome-sushi" in a terminal to get it to run (or you can simply log out and log back in).
That's it, Enjoy
