XCF thumbnailer does not work in Ubuntu 12.04Posted: December 4, 2012
So on your Ubuntu 12.04 system you install the gnome-xcf-thumbnailer helper application, which is supposed to generate thumbnail icons for your XCF Gimp graphics files, but nothing happens. It just does not work.
- See if file gnome-xcf.thumbnailer exists in the directory /usr/share/thumbnailers
- If it doesn’t, create it (you shall become root to do that) and type in the following:
[Thumbnailer Entry] TryExec=gnome-xcf-thumbnailer Exec=gnome-xcf-thumbnailer %i %o MimeType=image/x-xcf;image/x-compressed-xcf;
As of March 2017 this problem still exists in Linux Mint 18 Sarah Mate.
