Eventually it should disappear to be replaced by an thumbnail picture that represents that particular file, or something more generic for the type of file.
Hi Tim, maybe, but waiting some time does not generate another thumbnail. Seems to depend from the files properties. Traversing .thumbnails does not help. Regards Joachim Backes
Can somebody tell me why nautilus does not use each time the same icon?When it makes a thumbnail, it stores the image inside ~/.thumbnails/. It usually does use the same image that it's previously created, but perhaps there's a reason why it recreates them (e.g. the file's apparently changed content). The thumbnails seem to be associated with the files with some sort of hash. I don't know if it's a hash just based on the original file content, or includes filenames and paths as part of the equation.
