Ubuntu – Nautilus not generating thumbnails in 13.10

13.10nautilusthumbnails

Like the title says, Nautilus is not generating thumbnails for any file types (pictures, documents, pdf, etc) after a clean install of 13.10. I have checked the preferences and it is set to always generate thumbnails.

Help please!

  • I solved the problem by deleting whole folder thumbnails in ~/.cache and remaking it.

    1. Disable preview in nautilus by opening home folder, Edit-> Preferences-> Preview.

    2. sudo rm ~/.cache/thumbnails

    3. Empty trash can

    4. mkdir ~/.cache/thumbnails

    5. Reboot

    6. Enable preview, again home folder, Edit-> Preferences-> Preview.

    Done.
