• Loss of Thumbnails in Nautilus/Gnome3

    Hello, all. While there appear to be plenty of online repair references
    to subject (I think I've tried them all including reinstalls) I thought
    perhaps on the ng there would be some fresh ideas. I've been a loyal
    user of Fedora/Gnome for quite a number of years now and have never
    experienced a lack of capability to generate new thumbnails (via
    Nautilus) until now. Some details:

    1. Fedora 27, Gnome 3.26.2, Nautilus

    2. Current install will display older thumbnails (from jpg, pdf, etc
    files) but won't generate new thumbnails. Any new attempts by Nautilus
    to generate thumbnails result in .png (small file sizes non-viewable by
    an image viewer) file entries in ~/.cache/thumbnails/fail/gnome-thumbnail-factory.

    3. The traditional fix was to simply delete stale/failed entries in gnome-thumbnail-factory and Nautilus would auto generate new ones. This doesn't work with the installed software mentioned above.

    I would most welcome if anyone can suggest a solution(s). Thanks for
    your time and comment. Sincerely,
