Bug#509788: nautilus: doesn't generate image thumbnails on obex mounted remote dirs

Package: nautilus
Version: 2.20.0-7
Severity: minor


Unfortunately, nautilus won't display photo thumbnails for files browsed on a bluetooth phone's remote dir mounted through obex :(

It's annoying since such phones can be used as cameras, and it's then a pain to have to transfer all images before being able to identify them. Thumbnails, like on local folders would be a great improvement (maybe generated locally and not on distant obex shared folder).

Hope this is a nautilus bug indeed.

Best regards,
