Post by soumyaranjanmahunt » Wed Aug 07, 2019 1:03 am

Is there any way i can view the .exe and .lnk icons in nautilus. Also when the app is running any way to show icon :?: in the dock?? I am using ubuntu 19.04 with wine-staging.

I'm not a Ubuntu user, but I see there is a package called exe-thumbnailer for Ubuntu in the universe repo:

https://packages.ubuntu.com/disco/exe-thumbnailer
https://github.com/exe-thumbnailer/exe-thumbnailer

After adding the universe repo to your /etc/apt/sources.list, you should be able to do:

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install exe-thumbnailer
I'm looking for something similar for openSUSE, that was when I came across your post.

Does that work for you? Please, let me know.

I commented on this bug, it does not work for me on openSUSE:

I already installed that, also I have tried gnome-exe-thumbnailer. None of them work.
Don't know about opensuse but in fedora wine showed the exe icon in the dock by default, but in nautilus icon isn't shown.
