You can see here a split screen of the same directory. The top is Konq in
super user mode showing the previews and the bottom is the same directory
in peon mode showing no previews.

What did I break?
Right-click on a jpeg image->Properties. What are the permissions set to
and the Auto Preview?

Permissions - which are greyed out - are set to Owner Can Read and Write, Group Can Read, Others Can Read. The Is Executable bit is checked.

Ownership is set to user kai, group "users".

The Preview tab shows nothing, but - greyed out - the Automatic Preview button is checked.


I decided to compare against a .png file which does show a preview. On it, there is a Meta Info tab and the Preview tab shows a smallish preview with the Automatic Preview checkbox enabled and checked.



On a new comparison, I did the same in Super User mode, and see that the Meta Info tab is enabled for JPEG files and the Auto Preview tab functions as normal.

Hmmm, interesting "problem" :-) . Who actually owns the directory(ies) where the jpgs reside?



In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought
that tragedy is just around the corner.

What is that? Something from NetHack? :)


Don't know what NetHack is but it's not from there - it's a tagline from the late 80s-early90s I used on the BBS :-) .

Cheers.
