Nautilus crashes whenever one tries viewing a directory containing jpeg 2000 files, I suspect because it tries to create a thumbnail and fails (I'm using 13.10, and you can probably reproduce this quite easily as well).

  1. Is there a way to tell nautilus not to thumbnail certain formats?
  2. Is there a known fix for this problem? There are similar bugs for very old versions of nautilus, but not any in recent years.

This is a confirmed bug.

To disable thumbnails of .jp2, see this question.

  • What's the mime type though? – nbubis Feb 3 '14 at 3:02
  • The mime type is image/jp2. – Ian Hyzy Feb 3 '14 at 21:42
  • That doesn't seem to work - file says the mime type is octal, not jp2 :( – nbubis Feb 3 '14 at 21:47
  • Octal doesn't seem to be a valid mime type? – Ian Hyzy Feb 6 '14 at 22:46
  • Disabling jp2 thumbnails still causes the crash in Utopic, btw – scruss Jan 1 '15 at 16:03
