No, ./release/bin/blender-thumbnailer.py is just a script which
extracts thumbnails from blend files.
For gnome to use this to generate thumbs you have to run...
gconftool --type boolean --set
/desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/application at x-blender/enable true
gconftool --type string --set
/desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/application at x-blender/command
"blender-thumbnailer.py %i %o"
So for KDE's Dolphin I expect there is an equivalent command, just
need to research how their thumbnails are generated and stored.
So anyone here know the KDE answer? Thanks!
