I spent weeks trying to figure out why my XDG portals were broken, only to end up here.

As of today, GTK file choosers still don't generate and thus show a thumbnail automatically if you didn't generate the thumbnail through for the by any mean beforehand (At least in my experience) . Which makes this package extremely useful.

Thank you for the maintenance.

this package broke xdg-desktop-portal here, something makes the xdg-desktop-portal service don't start anymore.

This works great! Seems like thumbnails work in chrome now, I appreciate all your hard work

It's fine if desktop icons are disabled, wallpaper is then displayed normally.

People have reported issues with xfce and this patch before. Something to do with the glib thumbnail generation here causes problems with some part of xfce.

This patch causes XFCE4 desktop to display just a black background instead of wallpaper+icons. Anyone else having this issue?

Turns out it was a user error of sorts. Since I am on Manjaro and forgot I am on the "stable" branch on this box, I just happened to hit the brief window where the sysprof version in the Manjaro repo was just enough out of date to fail to compile. After installing the git version of sysprof from AUR the project compiled successfully. Apologies for wasting your time.
