In fedora 29 (workstation) 32 bits (i386) with nautilus 3.30, the thumbnail of the images doesn't show.

It can be tested with live image desktop.

I have tried modifying the typical options (change local vs size of file, ...) unsuccessfully.

I have verified that generated images with one pixel in "/home/liveuser/.cache/thumbnails/fail"

¿Any ideas?

Thanks a lot.

PD: With f29 64 bits works fine. Only occurs in 32 bits version

It won't work because the live and your username are different. The live doesn't have write access to your ~/.cache folder . I suspect your problem is related to permissions. Carefully examine what you're doing there.

Thanks for the comment

The 64 live works perfectly with the same use case.

I also tried in a installed system (32 bits) with the same result. It is not a permission problem

Then I think the only way is to file a bug to bugzilla. Besides, why do you still use a 32bit version (i686, not i386 anymore)? It's slower has no advantages and will become obsolete as many distributions will get rid of it.

In your home there is a ~/.thumbnails directory. Stop nautilus, rename the directory and then restart nautilus. The thumbnails will be rewritten.

Thank you very much for the quick reply.

I can't delete it, because that directory has not generate. Only generate the fail directoryl in .cache/thumbnails.

I have also tried to delete cache/thumbnails directory, and kill/restart nautilus but the error continues.
