    How are thumbnails created in Knoppix 7.2?

    .
    Where do thumbnails come from in /home/knoppix/.thumbnails/ ?
    I have 13M of these, all recognizable, but I don't know how they came to be.
    A byproduct of using Image Viewer, or PCManFM on images perhaps?
    Who can educate me on this?

    Not only PCManFM but also the filemanager Konqueror and Dolphin uses '~/.thumbnails' and the graphical tools like GPicView, GThumb or Gwenview. But Nautilus uses '~/.cache/thumbnails'.

    You can delete or rename this folders or their subfolders "large" and "normal" without any risk; they will be recreated the next time whenever a filemanager or a graphical tool creates again thumbnails.

    Thanks, Werner.
    Is there any way to choose not to save these thumbnails?
    Perhaps re-route them to /tmp?

    I wouldn't use a symlink to '/tmp/', because '/tmp/' is size limited to 2GB. But why not insert a command within '/etc/init.d/knoppix-halt'
    Code:
    [ -d /home/knoppix/.thumbnails ] && rm -fR /home/knoppix/.thumbnails/
    perhaps after the two lines
    Code:
    [ -r /etc/default/locale ] && . /etc/default/locale
    [ -r /etc/sysconfig/i18n ] && . /etc/sysconfig/i18ne
