GThumb but no thumb(nails)

GThumb without thumbnailsWhile I was ordering and sorting a bunch of holiday snaps at some point GThumb just stopped showing the thumbnails. I just got a generic icon for an image.

I have absolutely no idea what happened.

There was nothing in the GThumb preferences about not showing thumbnails, so I was a bit at a loss. Fortunately I got the idea of using the Gnome Configuration Editor, which on my Debian testing system is on Applications | System Tools | Configuration Editor and there it was. The gconf key /apps/gthumb/browser/show_thumbnails was not set.

Once the key was set to ‘true’ (by checking the box) GThumb immediately showed the thumbnails again.

So the fix was easy, but I still haven’t got a clue why it was turned off automatically in the middle of a session. (more…)
