Setting: No previews for downloads of wallpapers, themes

Hello,

after installing KDE Neon User 5.11 yesterday, I just found that the system settings dialogs show no previews when I want to download new themes, wallpapers and alike. Google didn't help except that .xession-errors was mentioned. But this file didn't show anything that seems to be related to the missing previews/thumbnails. Thumbnails in Dolphin work fine, btw.

Does anybody have an idea what might cause the problem?

Thanks,

Robert

If you mean the 'Loading Preview' bug:

Hi,

thanks for your quick reply!

And, yes, that's exactly what I see. But I'm afraid that I won't be able to make use of the C++ source files the link in your post is pointing to. Is there perhaps some compiled stuff a user without deep Linux knowledge can install?

The bug and the fix is part of the KDE frameworks. Next planned, KF 5.40, release is 'Sat November 11th, 2017' : https://community.kde.org/Schedules -> https://community.kde.org/Schedules/Frameworks
