Gnome thumbnails size

I wonder - am I the only one who feels that Gnome default thumbnail size is way too small? See the bug report for the background, motivation and a comparison screenshot :)

P.S. The fix is simple - "dconf write /org/gnome/nautilus/icon-view/thumbnail-size 128; rm -r ~/.thumbnails/*" and then close and restart your nautilus file browser. ;)

    Does gnome scale thumbnails? I always have icons in compact view as small as possible (150%) so i don't really see this being important for people like me?

    Try switching to icon view and 'zooming in' - it will take the same small 64px icons and stretch them to 96px (150%) and 128px (200%). But it will also increase the text font size and spacing between icons too, so you get huge text, huge white spaces and same blurry thumbnails, just bigger.

    For me compact mode is worse than icon mode - considering that the files that I look at in nautilus typically have long file names (video titles), where one column of 8 entries fits in a compact view, 4 column of two entries fit in icon view, but in icon vie I have huge 128px thumbnails, while in compact view I get to see the whole filename. To me the thumbnail for a video file is more useful than the last bits of the filename that I can see on mouseover anyway.
