Latest version of Caja (1.6.2) didn't show any thumbinails in list mode. The same happens for the folders that use an image as icon.
Also, the thumbinails of .XCE images aren't showed in all view modes, despite other file managers (PC Man FM and Thunar) show them.
I've already try to set Show Thumbnails to alwais, but it's the same.

Also, when you are in list view and you middle-click to a folder one time for open a folder in a tab, the folder doesn't open: you must middle-click twice, despite the preferences settings.

Also using ffmpeg thumbnails, any video preview is showed in list mode, and in compact view mode isn't showed under 150% dimensions.

On Nautilus,Thunar etc. everything works good. so I'm sure it's a problem related Caja.

I hope these issues will be resolved soon, these thumbinails bug ruin one of the best Linux file managers ever.

no, I just asked if this bug were resolved with the patch posted in pull request #154 , but it didn't resolve it, unfortunatley.
The bug still unresolved with latest Caja 1.6.2, please confirm it and mark as "confirmed", so it can be resolved soon.

I'm not sure what's wrong here... isn't the list view mode supposed to have just small file type icons to the left of filenames?
Thumbnails of size that small don't seem to be useful to me. You want actual image thumbnails, you switch to icon view.

nemo has thumbinails in list mode, so why caja didn't? I think it's a bug, surely. Thumbinails in list mode are usefull for my daily usage

Yes, I see them in Nemo. Doesn't look good in my opinion. I'd rather see one icon per file type than very small thumbs that are useless unless you set zoom to high enough value. 😕

I also couldn't find any option to turn them on/off...

an option for turn it on/off could be the right way

Thumbnails in the list view are very convenient feature and it needs to be enabled.

I also think it should be enabled. Dependent on the zoom level, list views also can have quite big thumbnails.

I agree with @geplus, having more options is the MATE way.
Edit: also this feature exists in Nautilus

I have upgraded my system from Ubuntu 12.04 to Ubuntu Mate 16.04

Now I can no longer see previews of my graphics files in List View.
Preferences -> Preview is set correctly. Are you sure this isn't a bug?

I can see the previews in Icon View but that is no use to me. I need to be able to compare files at a glance, being able to see roughly what the image looks like, filetype, file size and date.

There was no MATE in Ubuntu 12.04. Did you use some external repo for it?

@monsta You are right. I forgot to mention that I was using Nautilus in Ubuntu 12.04. This was replaced by caja in Ubuntu Mate 16.04. They seem identical apart from the lack of List View preview.

so we have two functions with similar names, one that doesn't do
what users expect and the other does. when you see that, you know
that something's screwed up in this code.
