I used to be able to set my icon/thumbnail size to 128 px using gconf-editor in previous versions of Ubuntu. Is there a tweak to enable larger icons/thumbnails in nautilus 3.x?

You will need to install dconf-tools Install dconf-tools, then run dconf-editor, navigate to org>gnome>nautilus>icon-view and set the thumbnail-size to 128.
