# Nautilus keeps re-creating thumbnails

I'm have a thumbnail problem on my Ubuntu 12.04 machine where my thumbnails won't stay deleted. I've gone through the following steps in an unsuccessful effort to permanently delete old thumbnails:

• In the dconf/Configuration Editor, I go to org -> gnome -> desktop -> thumbnailer and paste the MIME type into the value field of disable key.
• In my .thumbnails directory, I delete all files.
• Stop nautilus using nautilus –q. Then restart nautilus.

As soon as I open an image folder, a thumbnail for each image file in this "images" folder gets re-created in the .thumbnails folder again.

How does one resolve this behavior of thumbnails getting re-created each time I open an image folder?
