Gnome Files thumnailer for ora and kra images

Files (aka Nautilus ) with the theme 'Numix' and 'Global dark theme' on 'Gnome Tweak'

Long story short : I moved to the Gnome 3.10 desktop environment and I enjoy ( I'll blog post more about soon ). But I found the lack of thumbnail support for 80% of my files in 'Files' frustrating. No  *.ora and *.kra thumbnails ?  ( aka Open Raster , and Krita native file format ). Both multi-layered, both open format, both awesome.

A lot of thumbnailer exist over the Internet for 'Files' ; but most are broken : based on gtk2, or older version of Python, or using old Gconf way under Gnome 2. So, I decided to get hand dirty and write my own.  Surprisingly , it worked and if you look at my code, I promise you a good laugh. But it works. So I share.

Download and Install :
All you need  is here :
Scroll down on the link and start by the README file ; I tried to explain all in it.

Notes :
- Works also for Linux Mint 's Cinnamon Nemo file browser.
- Don't forget in preferences to allow thumbnail preview for files larger than 100MB ; those layered files tend to be large.
