I still get the same results using the digikam-5.4.0-01-x86-64 appimage.

I never used an appimage before! that was pretty simple, pretty nice and I
like it!

Also it is not a 2MB size. I just was looking some more and there are
 larger files with thumbs showing up.  It was just that the first dir I
checked had only 2 out of 13 that showed and those 2 were less that 2MB,
the next dir I checked had like 103 and only showed 15 and when I sorted it
by size, there were 15 files less than 2MB.   Then I tried to make one that
show and one that doesn't smaller, so I could put them in my report
question, but they both show up after converting them to a smaller size
using the batch resize to make them tiny.  It must be something in the

The F5 does show doing thumbs but they still don't show up.

Maybe related...
in the thumbs view, any pics i see (have thumbs) the EXIF info changes when
I click on them, in the table view it's flaky, I click on a different album
in the tree, then click back and click a pic, then I  can cursor up and
down and exif data shows and changes, but as soon as I click a pic, exif
data goes away, keyboard cursor up and down does not bring it back.
