    Re: HOWTO: Thumbnails for OpenOffice.org 2 files

    Could someone with Jaunty do some testing for me? Basically, post the output of the following commands, once you've downloaded and installed the code.
    First, create an OpenOffice.org document test.odt in your home directory.
    Code:
    unzip ~/test.odt Thumbnails/thumbnail.png -d ~/
    totem-gstreamer-video-thumbnailer "~/Thumbnails/thumbnail.png" "~/thumbnail.png"
    gnome-video-thumbnailer "~/Thumbnails/thumbnail.png" "~/thumbnail2.png"
    ooo-thumbnailer ~/test.odt ~/thumbnail3.png
    Then check to see if thumbnail.png , thumbnail2.png and thumbnail3.png are the correct thumbnails of the document, with a white rather than a transparent background.

    Is there a particular reason the debian build system for the package still is setup for python? I would think it would only need to copy the bash script into the correct location and not actually need pycentral anymore?

    No good reason, besides the fact that I know that system the best. Other non-python packages such as ubuntu-wallpapers use pycentral as well, so I'm not doing anything unheard of.

    Hello. I have question. Does your thumbnailer not work with files with whitespace in their names?

    Re: HOWTO: Thumbnails for OpenOffice.org 2 files

    I just want all to know that my code that I posted in "HOWTO: Thumbnails for OpenOffice.org 2 files" thread is under public domain.

    Can't obviously speak for others.

    Re: HOWTO: Thumbnails for OpenOffice.org 2 files

    I noticed that the thumbnailer supports Open Office Spreadsheets (i.e. it will generate an preview image for an ODS file) but it doesn't get Nautilus to do this by default. Could you please add support for the vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet file type in the gconf schema? Oh yeah, the thumbnailer that I downloaded had /usr/bin/ooo-thumbnailer broken on line 33. Just change it to:
    Code:
    if [ "`dirname $ifile`" != "${XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR:-$HOME/Templates}" ]; then
    And you're set (notice the quotations, otherwise white space in the file names create problems). I tested this in Jaunty with no problems!

    Further, would any agree that this would look better with the OpenOffice logo in the bottom right corner, similar to the way OpenOffice works under other operating systems?

    Re: HOWTO: Thumbnails for OpenOffice.org 2 files

    Hello people, based on the script posted above, I created a new package with a modified version of the script, and add more formats in schemas.

    Supported formats: odt, ods, odp, doc, xls, ppt and rtf.

    For the new formats (doc, xls, ppt and rtf) the script uses the unoconv for conversion.

    I like thumbnails in nautilus. We already have thumbnails for images, video and preview of music.

    Why not for documents? This is a good feature request for future version of ubuntu. What do you think?
