    Re: Howto: Movie covers as video thumbnails (hack) (it works for books too)

    I am having some issues with this. I have installed the latest deb package. When I type:

    gedit ~/.imdb-thumbnailer/config

    It opens up with a blank screen, cant save to it as the file doesnt exist.

    Any ideas??

    Thanks

    Yes:
    Code:
    touch ~/.imdb-thumbnailer/config
    gedit ~/.imdb-thumbnailer/config
    And add your paths there as explained in the help page:
    Code:
    imdb-thumbnailer --help

    I did try that

    voorhees@voorhees:~$ touch ~/.imdb-thumbnailer/config
    touch: cannot touch `/home/voorhees/.imdb-thumbnailer/config': No such file or directory

    Many Thanks

    mmm... I think I know what the problem is, try this:
    Code:
    mkdir ~/.imdb-thumbnailer
    touch ~/.imdb-thumbnailer/config
    gedit ~/.imdb-thumbnailer/config

    Yes, it is possible but it doesn't work well on nautilus. It seems that it doesn't detect transparencies in thumbnails.

    Do this at the terminal:
    Code:
    gedit ~/.imdb-thumbnailer/config
    and add:
    Code:
    theme_name=shadow
    New thumbnails will get the shadow theme.
