I must give thanks to Webup8 for this post, all this is their work and you can see the original post here:
Gloobus Preview was recently fixed so it now works with Ubuntu 12.04 too. Besides the Ubuntu 12.04 fix, the latest Gloobus Preview from BZR comes with GTK3 support, support for password-protected documents, a rewritten documents plugin, WebM support, fixed ttf, pdf and video plugins and other fixes.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gloobus-dev/gloobus-preview sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gloobus-preview gloobus-sushi
For the oppenoffice documents to work, you should install unoconv too
sudo apt-get install unoconv
Use it with Marlin
the file manager that will be used by default in elementary OS, can also use Gloobus Preview. To set Marlin to use Gloobus Preview, install Dconf-Editor:
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Then launch Dconf-Editor, navigate to apps > marlin > preferencesand set “/usr/bin/gloobus-preview” for the previewer-path. Then, just like in Nautilus, use the SPACE key to quickly preview files.

Hi, thanks for your tut, unfortunately I was unable to find marlin in dconf-editor, nor in gconf… 🙁 any idea how to change that setting elsewise?
i can confirm what schorsch said: using ubuntu 12.04, i do not see marlin under ‘apps’ – although marlin is working otherwise.
i relize that this is not a gloobus problem but any help would still be appreciated.
there’s no package as you said. i’m getting an error. gloobus-preview and gloobus-sushi can not be found. i had to remove that repo from my list again.

The PPA also support for previous ubuntu version, for Ubuntu older than 11.10, don’t install gloobus-sushi package.
