I initially installed this system with Plasma 5, and updated to Plasma 6, which may be where the issues came from. The issue started quite a while ago, but I didn’t think to note what versions caused the issue, assuming that it was a bug that was caused by the Plasma 6 update that would be fixed later.

In case it might be relevant, my .config folder actually contains symlinks to a dotfiles folder.

There is only a single disk on my machine, formatted as btrfs.

I do dual boot with Windows, but I don’t think that’s relevant.

Attempted Steps:

  • I tried deleting my .cache folder - no dice
  • I tried creating a new user - the new user did have the thumbnails.

This is kind of embarrassing, but I realized that I had somehow disabled thumbnails in View → Show Previews. The keyboard shortcut was F12, so I likely just accidentally disabled it at some point.

Nice you solved it yourself.
