Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-exe-thumbnailer

Gnome has switched to using gsettings instead of gconf in gnome 3, so for gnome-exe-thumbnailer to work on gnome 3, a gsettings schema has to be provided.

Apparently thumnbailer configuration is not in gsettings as well, but in external thumnbailer configuration file.
Install the attached file as /usr/share/thumbnailers/gnome-exe-thumbnailer.thumbnailer

Oh, this file requires the thumbnailer to handle gvfs URIs instead of absolute pathnames...

Scott Ritchie, the Ubuntu's wine maintainer, got a new version of gnome-exe-thumbnailer which includes fix for this bug already, but he is busy just now getting wine1.4 all working nicely with Precise. Please, be patient, I believe that this fix makes it into Precise on time.
