installing CoverGloobus

Post by jomaweb » Sun Feb 06, 2011 4:34 pm

Hi all

First of all, thanks for Mint, whatever the version I use I'm in love with this distro.
Now I'm using LMDE and I will be happier installing CoverGloobus. Sadly, there is no Debian version, just ubuntu, and tried to install from source with no succes

any suggestion?

Maybe this could help:

There is a resource - ... 0&start=15
and adding it (see also this -
you should gain:
CoverGloobus, Equinox, Murrine (from GIT), Cairo (with David Turner's patch), Pino, Nautilus Elementary and few others.
(More informations:

I haven't tried that...

P.S. I downloaded the 'Packages' file from - ... nary-i386/
and there is an info inside about:

Description: Small widget to show the cover art on desktop
*** Unofficial package from ***
CoverGloobus is a small widget that floats on your desktop,
giving you quick access to your music. Start playing your
music and see how the album artwork looks, your ratings for
the song, pause and skip any song and even get access to
the songs lyrics and guitar tabs.

So, suppose that resource as mentioned above could help...
Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.

I'll give it a try.
for the moment I feel like I can manage the differences between an Ubuntu-based distro and the debian-based. (my fingers crossed)

thanks a lot
