Gloobus Preview Update Brings GTK3 And Ubuntu 12.04 Support, More ~ Web Upd8: Ubuntu / Linux blog []
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 > preferences and set "/usr/bin/gloobus-preview" for the previewer-path. Then, just like in Nautilus, use the SPACE key to quickly preview files.

This works, but the config path is under org/pantheon/files now.

ssh login works but sftp doesn't...
The answer is below:
scp2/sftp and sftp-server use a special file-transfer protocol, which they speak over this SSH session. The protocol is in fact based on the same packet protocol used by SSH.

In order for this to work, the SSH session must be "clean" — that is, it must have on it only information transmitted by the programs at either end. What often happens, though, is that there are statements in either the system or per-user shell startup files on the server (.bashrc, .profile, /etc/csh.cshrc, .login, etc.) which output text messages on login, intended to be read by humans (like fortune, echo "Hi there!", etc.). Such code should only produce output on interactive logins, when there is a tty attached to standard input. If it does not make this test, it will insert these text messages where they don't belong: in this case, polluting the protocol stream between scp2/sftp and sftp-server. The first four bytes of the text gets interpreted as a 32-bit packet length, which will usually be a wildly large number, provoking the error message above.

This was the fix for not being able to SFTP to a Mac OS X server. Because (as I recall), users on that server were not allowed to change their own shells, I had by .bashrc 'exec' zsh WITHOUT checking to see if it was interactive ([ -z "$PS1" ], via

ssh works, but sftp doesn't | OpenSSH | Dev
For some reason your sftp-server is exiting immediately. Check that
/usr/sbin/sftp-server exists, is executable and doesn't crash
when executed.

For a better test of sftp-server, you can run it directly from
sftp: "sftp -P /usr/sbin/sftp-server blah"

Good suggestions, but no nice on this OS X server I'm troubleshooting. The sftp-server binary is actually at /usr/libexec/sftp-server, though.

xfce - How can I change which file manager dropbox opens with by default? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
This post says Nautilus is still hard-coded to use Nautilus, but I have a feeling that's not the case, since it works with Nemo when Nautilus is not installed. Mucking about with xdg-mime as suggested here ( Suggested fix is to create a script called /bin/nautilus with the contents:
exec thunar ~/Dropbox
exit 0

It seems like there should be a better way, though.

Bug 366532 – handle svg thumbmailer (libcroco) crash more gracefully
Maybe solution to SVG thumbnails causing Nautilus to crash: deleting the thumbnail cache. ( I used Bleachbit.)

I've discovered that the problem was caused by an image file on my desktop. It seems to have been the SVG thumbnailer that was the cause of the crash. I moved the image and then Nautilus was able to continue properly.
