Cool improvement for Nautilus thumbnails

Saw this trick in OMG! Ubuntu today. You can check out the original article here.

All you have to do is enter the following three commands in a terminal.

  • wget http://a.imageshack.us/img135/8666/thumbnailframe.png
  • sudo mv thumbnailframe.png /usr/share/pixmaps/nautilus/thumbnail_frame.png
  • killall nautilus

And check out the improved look in nautilus thumbnails. What this actually does is changing the default border in the thumbnails to a more 3D looking one.
