Thunar and thumbnails

I being an XFCE user upgraded to 4.8 shortly after release. Somewhere in there Thunar stopped giving me thumbnails for images and a few other things that it used to have built in thumbnailers for. This of course is a bit annoying specially when you are looking for new wallpapers. Yes, I know, my motivations are whacky…

A bit of research and I found that Thunar now depends on tumbler for its thumbnail generation. tumbler is pretty straight forward and simple to install. I wrote a dirty little basic Pkgfile for it which I need to clean up later, but it works for now.

Have any Question or Comment?
