This package provides scripts to generate thumbnails for several file formats commonly used in the GNOME environment. When using these scripts with the nautilus file manager, for example, icons for PDF files will present the same appearance as the document itself. This has long been the case with images, but this package extends this technique to formats like PDF, PostScript and GIMP XCF.

Nasty Details

This package provides a gconf schema and several scripts. The schema tells GNOME filemanagers like nautilus of the scripts' existance. The scripts do the dirty work of creating 128x128 pixel PNG thumbnails for documents at the file manager's request.
