    Ubuntu 13.04 Nautilus

    Nautilus is not showing thumbnails for any files but if I open nautilus as root it is showing thumbnails of files im using Ubuntu 13.04 this did always work.

    I am not at home now but if you will search you will find a place to set thumbnails or textview.

    I don't think that's what the OP talking about. I have the exact same problem, regardless of settings.

    I hadn't thought to try opening as root, but did so just now, and sure enough I get thumbnails then...

    Ok, I got it.

    If the OP problem is the same as mine, somehow root owns /home/yourusername/.cache/thumbnails

    So you just have to do this:

    Code:
    sudo chown -R yourusername:yourusername ~/.cache/thumbnails
    This will change the ownership of the folder to your user and group.

    I didn't need to logout or restart nautilus or anything - as soon as I went back to that directory it was fixed.
