I installed Lubuntu and noticed there were no video file thumbnails in the file manager, pcmanfm. I did some poking around and it looked like some people were saying because of some changes in Gnome 3, pcmanfm wasn't able to create video thumbnails anymore.
So, I installed nautalis, using it with the --no-desktop option, but it also wouldn't give me any video thumbnails.
I have strange problem with thumbnails in my Ubuntu machine.
I was using Ubuntu with Cinnamon 1.8 from stable ppa and it was good but then Cinnamon 2.0 came out with some broken packages uploaded to stable ppa nad things gone wrong...
Anyway after few updates Cinnamon started to work normaly except Nemo - there are no thumbnails at all, only icons.
Some week ago Nemo was update from 1.8.5-1 to 2.0.0-2, and after that Nemo could not create new video thumbnails.I downgrade Nemo to 1.8.5-1 (and gnome-desktop 1:3.10.1-1 to 1:3.8.4-1) and then video thumbnails work again. I have tried every new Nemo version since, but it's the same.I only use Openbox, no DE.
Today after I rebooted my syystem I noticed strange folders in my home folder. I tried to delete them after I accessed thunar as root, but no success. The process of deleting is lasting forever, and nothing happens. When I try to see the size of the folders, also "calculates" the size forever (I canceled the process after 30 minutes). What could cause this.
Gwenview is not showing video thumbnails since I've upgraded (via fresh install) to F17. I found an old bug report about it, but it's supposed to be fixed in the current version that ships with F17. Is anyone else seeing (or is that not seeing ..lol..) this problem?
