Stevens, you only had to install "kdegraphics-thumbnailers" to get PDF
thumbnails and previews to work in Leap421::dolphin? Hmm, I foresee a
re-install coming up.
That package also worked here. However, the previews are rather useless,
unless you happen to have a spare electron microscope lying around.
...which is why I convert the pdf files to djvu files, and preview those
instead.

...which doesn't do anyone any good, if they have to work with pdf files. ;)

On the contrary. I can preview the files without a microscope, and when
I find the document I need, I can switch to the PDF in a full viewer :-)

Remember that DjVu renders the complete PDF document, including pages.
The only thing you lose is that text is converted to images and can not
be selected as text.


But you seem to be the only one with this problem.
My thumbnails and PREVIEWS are appropriately sized.

Good you found a work around, but its really not necessary, and
not something I could recommend as a general practice. I'd wait
for a bug fix before I'd hack all my documents.

But like I say, this is not necessary. previews and thumbnails work and are
appropriately sized.
Fix your tools, don't rebuild your document store.
