This howto install a nautilus script that ease the forced refresh of thumbnails by deleting the thumbnails cache for the selection.

This howto is tested on:

  • Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander

Installation

Detect the path to Nautilus scripts folder:

NAUTILUS_SCRIPTS_PATH="${HOME}/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/"
if [ ! -d "${NAUTILUS_SCRIPTS_PATH}" ]; then
  NAUTILUS_SCRIPTS_PATH="${HOME}/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts"
fi

Download the script:

command wget 'https://raw.github.com/biapy/howto.biapy.com/master/nautilus-scripts/Refresh%20thumbnails' \
    --no-check-certificate --output-document="${NAUTILUS_SCRIPTS_PATH}/Refresh thumbnails"
command chmod +x "${NAUTILUS_SCRIPTS_PATH}/Refresh thumbnails"

Delete the thumbnail cache for a file by right-clicking in Nautilius, 'scripts -> Refresh thumbnails'.

Thanks
