I just installed a samba server and my files are now accessable via samba. For any reason I can't see any thumbnails in the samba files. Is there an option to change the settings for Pantheon to display no local files with thumbnails?

Files is intentionally set to not thumbnail remote files by default in order to reduce network traffic.

There is a branch to provide an option to turn thumbnailing on - see:


but it needs some more work and other branches have a higher priority.
