Description:

Simple script to toggle on/off the nautilus file thumbnail preview without having to go through the nautilus preferences menu each time it needs to be changed.

This does not change your preferred view or zoom settings.

After you run the script to toggle on the thumbnail preview, do not forget to refresh the nautilus window (ctrl+r). If you do not, it will appear as if the script did not work.

This should help until nautilus provides the option for directory specific preview settings. It really sucks the CPU when viewing a large directory filled with PDF or AVI/video files.

Hi there! ...very nice idea. Deffinitly this needs to be included as an optional button in nautilus buttonbar. May be in elementary mod? Good work! With a button will be a lot better. :)

I'm pretty sure this is an old problem. I'm sure it's been brought up plenty. I would be content with having the ability to specify either opt-in or opt-out directories.

What GTK theme are you using?

The GTK theme is "T3K" and the window boarder is "No-Title". To get the transparency I use compiz with the transparency set to 55. If you use that much transparency you'll have to bold your font.

really nice, very useful.
i suggest you to say where the script must be placed, not everybody knows it.
