When I was on Arch Linux, using gnome-shell, nautilus was able to show all images tagged on my music files using Easytag as thumbnails. I am using Ubuntu now, with gnome-shell, but for some reason, nautilus can't show the album images of my flac files, showing a generic music icon for each one. It shows the images of MP3 files. How can I configure nautilus to search for flac tags and make it show them instead of the music icon?

I resolved the problem doing this suggestion. After installing the gnome 3 repository and updating the system, nautilus can now show flac thumbnails in Ubuntu 12.04.
