No Thumbnails for Any Files on Buster

Postby manmath » 2018-10-09 09:48

Nautilus can't create thumbnails for images, pdfs, videos, etc. I tried both tumbler and ffmpegthumbnailer. So far, no success. Please suggest me if I'm missing anything, any package. Here's what my installation has that may relate to thumbnails:

gvfs packages:

gvfs
gvfs-backends
gvfs-bin
gvfs-common
gvfs-daemons
gvfs-fuse
gvfs-libs

gdk packages:

gir1.2-gdkpixbuf-2.0
libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0
libgdk-pixbuf2.0-bin
libgdk-pixbuf2.0-common

ffmpeg packages:

ffmpeg
ffmpegthumbnailer
libffmpegthumbnailer4v5

gstreamer packages:

gir1.2-gstreamer-1.0
gstreamer1.0-alsa
gstreamer1.0-clutter-3.0
gstreamer1.0-gl
gstreamer1.0-gtk3
gstreamer1.0-libav
gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad
gstreamer1.0-plugins-base
gstreamer1.0-plugins-base-apps
gstreamer1.0-plugins-good
gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio
gstreamer1.0-tools
gstreamer1.0-vaapi
gstreamer1.0-x
libgstreamer-gl1.0-0
libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-0
libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-0
libgstreamer-plugins-good1.0-0
libgstreamer1.0-0

nautilus packages:

gir1.2-nautilus-3.0
libnautilus-extension1a
nautilus
nautilus-data

Also, I checked nautilus preferences. It's set to always show thumbnail for files below 4GB.

i don't use nautilus, so my advice is theoretical.
one thing i know for sure: tumbler is for thunar/xfce, not gnome.

you need to find out what nautilus' dependencies, install-recommends and suggests are (e.g. with synaptic package manager). i guess some that could provide thumbnails aren't installed.

I reinstalled the system, now it's all ok. But there're some new problems that I'll post on a new thread.
