Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Fresh slackware64 14.0 install, trimmed down with no 'e', 'kde', 'kdei', 't', 'tcl', 'xap' and 'xfce': running smooth. I'm a happy camper for the time being... :-)
Most notable differences from previous install:
- I was using nVidia's driver, where I'm now running nouveau;
- '/usr' is now on the root partition whereas it resided in its own partiton previously and caused some udev errors during bootup, but nothing that prevented it from running properly as far as I could tell;
- Perhaps most importantly, this install is pristine. I had been trying out enlightenment in the previous one, with packages built through sbo buildscripts. I don't recall replacing any of the base install packages during that 'test-drive' and I carefully removed everything when I was through with it.
Can you give me more information about your machine?
Slackware version and architecture?
Any other packages outside default slackware installation?
How do you install the packages? Using binary or build using git version?
Works here too. Try a different icon theme. Then, check Edit>Preference>Preview in Caja and make sure you have previews set correctly. Then, try creating a separate test user and logging out and logging back in as the test user. If it works, back up and move your $HOME/.cache, $HOME/.config, and $HOME/.local to see if you can narrow down the culprit.
i tried using another icon set, same results, i tried to use mate as root, same no thumbnails, so i found a folder in my home .thumbnails which i suppose mate store images of thumbnails,, there are 3 folders "fail", "large", "normal", in fail there are a bunch of broken images filled with color black. large is empty and normal has indeed a lot thumbnails of my files, every image looks fine and i can see them with eom, using slackware 14-current 64b, can i build the packages of MATE without an automatic installation?
btw: thumbnails for text files works fine and thumbnails of images works fine on Thunar.
if you are using -Current, you are advised to build your own packages from GIT, but read the CURRENT.TXT file first
have you tried using regular account? I never used root for daily desktop, so i can't reproduce your environment here.
also, never ever try to mix between 14.0 and -Current.
