Bug Description

With a Xubuntu Xenial amd64 based on a daily iso build, I've followed the test for Catfish in the packages tracker, and I've found the thumbnail capability of Catfish doesn't work.

If I'm searching an image, catfish doesn't display the thumbnail.

There is a screenshot here :

Apparently, it's not caused by Catfish, but by the thumbnail software of Xubuntu. I don't know which package is responsible of that. If you look the screenshot, you can see the file on the desktop in the background. And there is no thumbnail. Catfish doesn't display the thumbnail because it's not already created by the OS.

I can recheck now, but as I said it's not caused by catfish. If you watch the screenshot, the thumbnail on the desktop is also broken. After displaying the picture, the thumbnail appears. Maybe it's the normal use case.
