View Full Version : [ubuntu] Nautilus and Show Thumbnails preferences.

Files (or Nautilus) has preference settings to control when thumbnails will be loaded/displayed ... but they appear not to work!

I have "Show thumbnails: Local Files Only" and "Only for files smaller than: 10MB"

Yet, I'm displaying the contents of a remote nfs mount and Nautilus is busy creating thumbnails for .mkv files of 2GB upwards.

How can I stop the thumbnails being generated?
