NOTE : If you want to change the placement, open the file /usr/bin/cover-thumbnailer

The code for music thumbnail is from line 259 to line 285

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~flozz/cover-thumbnailer/v0.8/annotate/head%3A/cover-thumbnailer/cover-thumbnailer.py#L259

you can change those lines :

x = int((bg_width - cover_width + delta) / 2)
y = int((bg_height - cover_height) / 2)

Hello,

For the moment, you have to change the files stored in /usr/share/cover-thumbnailer

:) - Nov 28 2010
I replied to your private message :) - Nov 21 2010
There is no options for disabling the recursive search of a picture...

I will add this for the next version.

Can you report this as a bug ?
https://bugs.launchpad.net/cover-thumbnailer/+filebug

(I don't want to forget to do it ^^'...) - Nov 10 2010
I removed the picture rotation when I rewrote this part of the code... Normally it should be back in the next version as an option... :) - Oct 21 2010
hello,

if you type the following commands, what is the result ?

gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/inode@directory/enable

gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/inode@directory/command

test -x /usr/bin/cover-thumbnailer && echo ok || echo error


:) - Sep 14 2010

If you draw an other CD Case, it is possible to replace the default pictures by yours :) - Jul 28 2010
No, it is not possible, because it is nautilus which decides when a thumbnail must be made... - Jul 25 2010
Bug fixed! - Jul 23 2010
hum... I forgot somthing :(...

I'll report this bug on launchpad and I'll fix it as soon as I can... thank you !

For the moment, you can configure GNOME's folders for not having this bug:

gedit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs

and past this in the file :
##
XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop"
XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Download"
XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME/Templates"
XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/Documents"
XDG_MUSIC_DIR="$HOME/Music"
XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/Pictures"
XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/Videos"

Sorry, it does not work with dolphine, only with nautilus. - Jul 18 2010
In my nautilus I've just set the thumbnails size to 128px... so I don't know :( - May 02 2010
Hello,
The spacing between two icon depends on the name length under the icon. It's nautilus which calculates the space between two columns.
But you can increase the thumbnail size with gconf-editor or gconftool :

big size thumbnails :
gconftool-2 -t int -s /apps/nautilus/icon_view/thumbnail_size 128

normal size thumbnails :
gconftool-2 -t int -s /apps/nautilus/icon_view/thumbnail_size 96

regards, - May 02 2010
Yes but I can't remove the users thumbnail cache, because it's not normal for a package to modify the user's home... I think it's more a nautilus bug, because it shows thumbnails of files whose it doesn't have any thumbnailer... - Apr 18 2010
Hello,

I think that the better way to remove the thumbnail is by clicking on the "Clear Thumbnail Cache" before removing the software.

But you can also enter the following command in your terminal :

rm -rf ~/.thumbnails

ça rend pas si mal que ça non plus je trouve... Mais je préfère Nautilus+Cover thumbnailer :) - Mar 07 2010
Hum,
Why not... I will see for a future version :) - Feb 18 2010
If you just want to change the icon of the folder where is your DVD/Series, just put a picture called
[.] folder/cover .jpg/.png in it

Example :
~/Video/Series/BattleStar/.cover.png - Feb 18 2010
OK :D
\o/ - Feb 17 2010
Ok... :(


* Have-you restarted your GNOME session ?

* can you try this command ?
covet-thumbnailer /home/$USER/Music/MyArtist OUT.PNG
(give a real path in the command)

The command output an error ?
OUT.PNG has been created in your home folder ?

* what did this command output ?
gconftool-2 -g /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/inode@directory/enable

I have successfully install cover-thumbnailer on Mandriva Spring 2009;

I think you have just forgot to install the dependencies;
try an "urmpi python-imaging",
and then, clear the thumbnail cache, and it should works :)

http://software.flogisoft.com/cover-thumbnailer/img/screenshot_more03.png

The dependencies are :
- python
- python-imaging
- gconf
- nautilus

- gettext (just when you install cover-thumbnailer, for building local files) - Feb 17 2010
I'll make more test on those distro for understanding why it doesn't works :/ - Feb 16 2010
What is your nautilus version ?
Thumbnails are enabled in the nautilus preferences dialog ? - Feb 16 2010
It works in other distro :

- take the src package,
- extract it,
- install gettext,
- run the install script as root,
- and then, restart your GNOME session

:) - Feb 16 2010
Thumbnails are stored with all other GNOME thumbnails, in ~/.thumbnails/ :) - Feb 15 2010

Thank you for these beautifully theme.

I noticed that the "ETCHED_IN" state is missing for the checkbox and radio button. It can be good to add it to the theme :)
