Hi all!

Could somebody please verify this:

Create a new user, log in with that account and let the wizard ceate a configuration.

Now open konqueror, go to a folder with images. You only see thumbnails for images with embedded thumbnails and a generic icon for all other images.

Log out from TDE, open a virtual console, log in as previouse user and edit ~/.trinity/share/config/kdeglobals, find this section:


Now change "MaximumSize=0" to something bigger, e.g.:

Log into TDE again, go to the perevious folder. Now all thumbnails are created.

Open kcontrol, select "TDE Components/Filemanger", there the tab "Preview". "Max. File size" is fixed to 0 - which causes the thumbnails not to be created.


Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.
