I can't find out how to enable Pdf previews in Dolphin 15.08.2, is it possible in this new version?

kdegraphics-thumbnailers is installed and uptodate


As suggested by user26687 the solution mentioned in the bug report seems to solve the problem:

  1. install the needed thumbnailers
  2. make a symbolic link to the installed thumbnailers in the qt5 plugins folder, run:

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/plugins/* /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/

Replace x86_64-linux-gnu with i386-linux-gnu for 32bit.

Note: the problem still exists in Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS xenial xerus.

The bug is also known in Launchpad.
