thumbnails plugin creates thumbnails for your album folders with the
album cover. This works on freedesktop.org-compliant file managers such as
Nautilus or Thunar, and is therefore POSIX-only.
To use the
thumbnails plugin, enable it (see Plugins) as well
as the FetchArt Plugin. You’ll need 2 additional python packages:
%spyxdg and %spathlib.
thumbnails needs to resize the covers, and therefore requires either
ImageMagick or Pillow.
To configure the plugin, make a
thumbnails section in your configuration
file. The available options are
- auto: Whether the thumbnail should be automatically set on import.
- force: Generate the thumbnail even when there’s one that seems fine (more
recent than the cover art).
- dolphin: Generate dolphin-compatible thumbnails. Dolphin (KDE file
explorer) does not respect freedesktop.org’s standard on thumbnails. This
functionality replaces the Freedesktop Plugin
