.SH THUMBNAIL CACHING
To enable thumbnail caching, please make sure to create the directory
.I ~/.sxiv/
with write permissions. sxiv will then store all thumbnails inside this
directory, but it will not create this directory by itself. It rather uses the
existance of this directory as an affirmation, that the user wants thumbnails
to be cached.
.P
Use the command line option
.I \-c
to keep the cache directory clean by removing all orphaned cache files.
Additionally, run the following command afterwards inside the cache directory
to remove empty subdirectories:
.P
.RS
find \-type d \-empty \-delete
