Krita thumbnails for Nautilus,Nemo file browser

Published on

A thumbnailer for Krita files (.kra) and Open Raster files (.ora compatible Mypaint, Gimp, Krita and Pinta) for Linux : Gnome 3.x File ( Nautilus ) , Cinnamon ( Nemo ) and other compatible GTK3 compatible file browsers ( File of Elementary OS, Nautilus fork of Ubuntu , probably even SpaceFM Gtk3 ).

Update 2020: I tested the 1-1 Debian package on Linux Mint 19.3 and also on Ubuntu 20.04LTS recently and it still works surprisingly. Just, don't forget to remove the hidden ".thumbnails" folder (at root of your /home/username/ folder) and killall any filebrowser launched (eg. killall nautilus). Once this is done, the thumbnails should appears.
