How to disable thumbnail of odt files in nautilus?


I am trying to disable thumbnails of odt files in nautilus in Debian 9, gnome.
I found some posts about it and I installed dconf-editor.
In dconf-editor, go to org > gnome > desktop > thumbnailers and in disable session, I set
mime type of odt file like this
Code:
['application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text']
but it doesn't work. I also cleared ~/.cache/thumbnails folder and reboot, but not work.

What is I am missing?

try looking in /usr/share/thumbnailers and see if nautilus has a file in there, then open it, well make a copy first, then open one of them and look for that file type in the line of file types and remove it, then move your back up out just for safe keeping, or delete it. which ever.

if it uses this one, then do the same for it.
