In Nautilus by default I have very nice default previews of different file types, for example JPEG, Png, Svg, text or PDF.

Is it possible to make Nautilus show preview thumbnails also of OpenOffice.org documents?


As indicated here, you can install libgsf-bin to enable that feature.

  • Confirmed. Above mentioned libgsf-bin, located in Synaptic works fine in Ubuntu 10.10. – Vincenzo Nov 14 '10 at 12:12
  • didn't work in Ubuntu 12.04 after restart, with an .odt file created by LibreOffice. – alfC Jun 30 '12 at 2:26
  • This works fine in ubuntu 13.04 with the patched nautilus – Julien Chau May 15 '13 at 11:57
