when using Gimp as a snap, you’ll see thumbnails for .xcf files only « inside » Gimp and nowhere else ( Nemo, Nautilus, gThumb… )
I did a messy workaround for .xcf thumbnails to appear anywhere expected : I put all of my user’s thumbnails into
~/snap/gimp/common/.cache/thumbnails/ and now
~/.cache/thumbnails/ is a symlink targeting the first.
You’d agree it’s absolutely a bad idea to store all of an user’s thumbnails into a particular subfolder of a particular snap.
So any suggestion to achieve that in a better way is welcome
⋅ how tell my session to look for thumbnails not only in
~/.cache/thumbnails/ but also in any thumbnails folder inside
Snap… see, I try to use them but it’s not painless.
