Herein are contained patches for Nautilus versions 2.18--2.30, to enable automatic use of VisualIDs wherever thumbnailing isn't possible (and if no custom icon is set, of course).
After installing libvisualid and its included utilities (either via
the generic `
./configure && make install' or via the
debian package-system [the relevant debian package-data is included
in the tarballs]), the version-appropriate
patch can be applide to Nautilus, and Nautilus can be built with
support for VisualIDs.
Simply patching via the `
patch' command should suffice,
but users of Debian-based systems
also have the option of formally loading the patch into the
apt-get source nautilus"
apt-get build-dep nautilus
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b -uc -us
The resultant `
*nautilus*.deb' files in
nautilus-$VERSION's parent-directory can then be installed
with "dpkg -i".
Note that the Nautilus patches, though functional, are somewhat
crude at this point--the way that VisualIDs are enabled/disabled
at run-time is to create/remove the "
directory (which is where the VisualID SVG-files will be cached).
