Thunar won't display thumbnails of audio files?

I’ve been using Manjaro XFCE edition on this super cheap laptop I just got and it has been a great experience. I have noticed that thumbnails are not displaying on any of my audio files, even though thumbnails for video and image files are being displayed just fine. What do I need to do to fix this? I’m running the latest version of manjaro and everything is up to date. Tumbler was already installed.

I know this is completely irreverent but these are my specs.
CPU: Intel Celeron N4020 (2) @ 2.800GHz
GPU: Intel GeminiLake [UHD Graphics 600]
RAM: 4 Gigs
Storage: 64 Gigs eMMC

Hi @Infernojake36,

I’ve got to ask…where is Thunar supposed to get a thumbnail, that’s visual, in/on/with an audio file?

However, if you mean icon, I believe it’s in the selected icon theme. If nothing there, I suspect it falls back to using the system default, even if that default is blank or showing no icon.

My audio files have album art that is supposed to display. My problem is that it’s only displaying the generic audio file icon rather than than the album art. I know it’s possible because it worked when I had the xfce version of linux mint installed on here they displayed just fine.

Make sure you have imagemagick installed and probably have to run:

pkill -9 tumblerd; /usr/lib/tumbler-1/tumblerd

Also, maybe you have to create the file: /usr/share/thumbnailers/audiocovers.thumbnailer with this

[Thumbnailer Entry]
Exec=ffmpeg -y -i %i %o -fs %s

and then again you have to restart tumblerd


That worked for me thanks!
