View Full Version : [ubuntu] Nautilus hangs (kind of) on image files?

December 7th, 2009, 02:51 AM
I am seeing an intermittent problem where, when you navigate to a folder with images in it, it will hang, specifically if it has bmp or png files. And by "hang", I really mean that the busy mouse icon is still there, it doesn't show all the files, but you can still navigate around, go up a directory and back, etc.

If I open a terminal, go to the directory and ls -al, then go back to Nautilus and refresh (or go up a directory and back in), it seems to fix it... sometimes. It's as if it's choking on making a thumbnail, but then comes out of it.

I have Karmic (upgraded from Jaunty)

Anyone else noticing this? Any other ideas? Thanks...

I've experienced this on my miss' computer, love to know of any solutions, and of course I'll post again if I figure it out
