Ubuntu: Caja only shows images and icons preview when root


I'm looking for the solution to this error for some time . I did not find anywhere.

Caja could only see the icons of the images and videos when at root. How can I enable this functionality in normal mode, without superuser on caja ?



Please open the file manager or Caja then show the hidden files by pressing Ctrl+H and check this directory /home/YOUR_USER/.cache .. you will find that the folder "thumbnails" is owned by root not by YOUR_USER!

you can fix that with terminal :

sudo chown -R YOUR_USER '/home/YOUR_USER/.cache/thumbnails'  

that would fix the permission issue and the thumbnails will be shown up normally :)
