Sparky MATE Testing - no jpg previews

Puzzling - with Debian 11 on the way I've been testing out MATE as a replacement for XFCE

Running stock Debian Bullseye MATE installed via netiso I can see jpg previews in Caja by default - no mess, no fuss

Using sparkylinux-2021.03-x86_64-mate.iso both live and installed and updated, this just will not work. All you see is the generic graphic icon.

As they are both based on bullseye and both run MATE 1.24 it is odd. I have tried the various solutions hovering around the interweb thing but no go. These range from creating a new user, installing video players, resetting MIME associations, re-installing Caja and all extensions....

It must be controlled by something somewhere - anyone got any ideas please? Or is it just broken in Sparky?


I've got exactly the same problem - and was not able to solve it. I've installed Nemo, this works. It's even a better file manager (in my humble opinion).


sudo apt update
sudo apt install ffmpegthumbnailer libgdk-pixbuf2.0-bin lbcanberra-pulse

Thanks very much!

sudo apt update
sudo apt install ffmpegthumbnailer libgdk-pixbuf2.0-bin libcanberra-pulse

works fine - the final item is libcanberra-pulse - I have added this in case others with the same issue come this way.

I wonder if it will be possible to have an updated iso please as I'm sure others may have had the same problem and just moved on without a solution?
