http://ubuntuforums.org – Nautilus is not generating thumbnails for pictures on network shares. This happens specifically when connecting to the share using the network browser (which uses gvfs). I have *no* problem when I connect using mount -t cifs with uid=<my user name> from the terminal. First, yes, I have set Files->Preferences->Preview->Show Thumbnails = Always Second, running Nautilus from the command line and navigating to a directory on the network share will throw up these error messages for the pictures: (nautilus:7969): GnomeDesktop-WARNING **: Unable to create an input stream for smb://mi (Hardware)
