HowTo force thunar to create image thumbnails

Postby ^rooker » Wed Jan 30, 2019 5:20 pm

Sometimes, Thunar (XFCE's file manager) is just not creating thumbnails for images in a folder.
If that happens, the following usually does the trick:

  1. Quit all Thunar instances:
    Code: Select all
    $ killall Thunar
  2. Quit the thumbnailing daemon "tumbler":
    Code: Select all
    $ killall tumblerd

If you then open Thunar and locate to a folder with image files that had no preview, it will spawn tumblerd again and create the thumbnails 8)

Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!
