Cover Thumbnailer (which we've covered before) is a small Python script which displays music album covers in Nautilus, preview of pictures which are in a folder and more. Since we last wrote about it, Cover Thumbnailer got a GUI, and the latest version 0.7 which was released today finally brings support for other (than Ubuntu) Linux distributions.
Changes in Cover Thumbnailer 0.7:
- The install script now works on Fedora, Mandriva and other distributions
- New options avalables
- New translations (English, Danish, French, Polish, Russian and Spanish)
There is now also a PPA available for Ubuntu users. To add it, paste this in a terminal:
-for Ubuntu Lucid and Karmic
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flozz/flozz
-for Ubuntu Jaunty:
sudo bash -c "echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/flozz/flozz/ubuntu jaunty main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list" sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 75034BEC
Then, install it with:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install cover-thumbnailer
After installing it, restart Nautilus:
Once installed, you can find it under: System > Preferences > Cover Thumbnailer.
For older Ubuntu versions, source code and more info can be found on the Cover Thumbnailer homepage or it's Gnome-Look page.
