Description Benni Hill 2012-08-03 00:13:35 UTC
Gwenview and dolphin can't read thumbnails generated by the other app. So when you open a folder in one application for which the other app already has created thumbnails, they get overwritten.

I figured out that gwenview refuses thumbnails generated by dolphin because it is using the tag "Thumb::Uri" whereas dolphin uses "Thumb::URI".

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
To avoid that the generated thumbnails are stored in different folders set the thumbnail size to minimum in each application.
1. Open a folder in thumbnail view in gwenview and wait until thumbs have been generated, close gwenview
2. Open the same folder in dolphin in preview mode, wait until thumbnails have been generated, close dolphin
3. Open the folder again in gwenview, thumbnails are not loaded from thumbnail cache but regenerated, wait until gwenview has finished
4. Open again in dolphin, thumbnails are also regenerated and not loaded from cache
Actual Results:  
Thumbnails are overwritten as soon as the other app opens the folder

Expected Results:  
Gwenview and dolphin should accept each other's thumbnail and show them. If that's not possible then they should not share a thumbnail cache folder.

Fix wrong key name in thumbnails

This prevented Gwenview from sharing thumbnails with Dolphin and other
Thumbnail-spec compliant applications.

Thanks to Benni Hill for pointing this out.
