The short answer is that you can't.

The explanation is that Konqueror isn't what displays this because Konqueror isn't exactly 
an application.  It is just a container for KPart plugins that do the actual work.  So, 
there is first a KPart that does the icon display of the directory and then that calls 
something to make the thumbnail preview which uses a library depending on the file type.

And all of this depends on the basic KDELibs which might have changed.

Perhaps there is a patch to the small piece of code that does the EPS thumbnail.
