yet another step to enable video thumbnails?

Postby kon.v on Sat Nov 01, 2008 7:48 pm

I have:

*Enabled mplayer thumbnails with mintDesktop

*Deleted .thumbnails

and when that much hadn't already worked,

*Rebooted.



No video thumbnails yet; is there something I've missed?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Check if these files are present:

- /usr/share/thumbnailers/video-thumbs.desktop
- /usr/lib/thunar/mplayer-thumbnailer
- /usr/lib/thunar/thunar-vfs-update-thumbnailers-cache-1

mplayer has to be installed for the thumbnails to work.

if all that is ok... try running this command:

gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/mintdesktop/thumbnails true

Is anyone else having this problem?
