Cover Thumbnailer is a small Python script which displays music album covers in nautilus, preview of pictures which are in a folder and more.
The script fits in nautilus like any other thumbnailer of the GNOME thumbnail factory; so you don\'t have to run it manually to generate thumbnails.

    You have to kill nautilus:

    sudo nautilus -q

    Open again, and you’ll see the changes.

    Installed it, configured it, no thumbs on a folder with 3 decades of music. Only subfolders suddenly appear as a CD with booklet.

    Not ready for 10.04 ?

    After a reboot I was able to get it work for the folders that I already had the cover art in the folder. On the ones I did not have any art work I just did a search for the album on the net saved the cover art to that folder and it appeared the next time I opened the music folder

    I want to undo the effect. I have purged it done everything to get rid of it. Even deleted all my Music.

    Only one problem remains. It still does not show a normal music folder icon in docky bookmarks. Shows some coverart. hate it.

    Got it. Just cleared Nautilus cache

  12. Peki says:

    Great, thx. Work for me after I restart my PC.

  13. Ludwig says:

    Ya, I am having trouble with the app on my 10.04 install as well. The app installs, I add a few folders to the Music list, I assure there is a *.jpg in the folder, and still no change on the icon. I purged nautilus cache, relaunched nautilus, even rebooted the machine…no go. Python is in my PATH. I know it works on another box of mine with Karmic Koala, but not here Lucid Lynx.

    Does anyone have it working on 10.04?
