I'm trying to install gloobus-preview on Freya 0.3.2 but the ppa:gloobus-dev/gloobus-preview doesn't seem to include trusty, are there alternative ppa recomendations? Is there anything else I could try?

I also asked this on the gloobus-preview launchpage. https://answers.launchpad.net/gloobus-preview/+question/294541

Update: After reading askubuntu I was able to install it from ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8, is that a recommended ppa?

Thanks in advance

    Webupd8 is fine. Andrei is pretty well trusted. However, you should post this as an answer if it solved your problem.

With reference to this article use webupd8 PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt update
sudo apt install gloobus-preview
  • After doing these steps I have managed to install it in Elementarty OS Loki, and it works if I type in terminal gloobus-preview it opens with a preview of the pwd. How can I assign this command with the space bar when I have a file/directory into Pantheon? Any ideas?
