Cover Thumbnailer Now Supports Nautilus 3.x

From its website: Cover Thumbnailer is a small Python script which displays music album's covers and a preview of pictures which are in a folder in Nautilus, the GNOME's file browser. Cover Thumbnailer generates the folder's thumbnail automatically, like any other thumbnailer; you don't have to generate thumbnails manually.


Version 0.8.3 of Cover Thumbnailer was released just recently, with support for Nautilus 3.x.

For installation in Ubuntu Lucid to Oneiric, get to a Terminal and run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flozz/flozz
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cover-thumbnailer

PPA: https://launchpad.net/~flozz/+archive/flozz

It would automatically start working immediately after the installation completed. If you want to tweak some of the settings, you can search the Dash for 'Cover Thumbnailer' or invoke its GUI from the Terminal:

cover-thumbnailer-gui

Those using any other Linux can download the source package from here:
