OK, I've finally managed to make it work. But the thing is I don't really know what made it ok since I apt-get install(ed) and remov(ed) each package once or twice each to test many different configs :-).<br><br>My thumbnails are ok, I finally installed mplayerthumbs as you adviced (I used the debian package provided as a link in the comments. Yes, maybe quite risky...).
<br><br>However, I'm not totally happy yet. I'm using gnome, so please excuse me if I say stupid things, just let me know :). I have a very poor knowledge about window manager architecture like kde or gnome, but if you have time to do it, do not hesitate to explain things related to what I ask, I'm very curious :).
<br><br>So, first question : As my defaults video reader, I use totem. I cannot use it under KPA, do you think there would be a way to permit it? From my understanding, it would need to write something to make it embeddable under kde (a kpart, right?). Is it something difficult to do? Isn't it already possible. At the moment, I'm using kmplayer with KPA, and totem outside kpa...
<br><br>Second question : a small program comes with totem, which is called "totem-video-thumbnailer". For me, the best would be to be able to use. I wouldn't be forced to install additional packages. I guess it would also help gnome users to use kpa, as there would decrease needed dependencies (as totem is the default gnome video player). What would be needed to enable kpa to use it? I guess it's again a matter of kde configuration, right?
<br><br>Thanks a lot.<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">2007/4/12, Jesper K. Pedersen <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>>:</span><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">
