    When you think it is a KDE design flaw, you could ask on the KDE forums, or even (maybe after asking on the forums first) filing a bug report with KDE.

    Try setting all permissions (owner/group/others) on "~/.cache/thumbnails/" to "forbidden"

    Bug report to KDE is submitted.

    I don't have
    ~/.cache/thumbnails/
    folder. There are some *.kcache files in ~/.cache/ folder.

    OK... maybe "~/.thumbnails" then.

    Although I see from a reply to your bug report ( https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=372999 ) it appears a known problem.

    Default The cache file

    There is nothing relevant in ~/.thumbnails

    I couldn't find a definite place where the thumbnails or cached images are saved. A candidate is file

    ~/.cache/icon-cache.kcache

    but it seems to have 11 MB size always.

    Thumbnails generated by Dolphin/Gwenview are stored at "~/.cache/thumbnails/" when using plasma5 ("~/.thumbnails" with KDE4).


    A candidate is file

    ~/.cache/icon-cache.kcache

    but it seems to have 11 MB size always.
    That's the cache for the icon theme (Breeze or whatever) that you're using.

    But, as I wrote in post #14 your problem seems to be a known issue which is in the process of being fixed.
