Description:

A KDE thumbnail generator for the FictionBook (fb2) file format.
Since 0.3 release it works with KDE Frameworks 5, for KDE 4 just keep using 0.2 stable release.

Once installed go to Configure Dolphin -> General -> Previews and select FictionBook documents.

I don't use this file format, so I tested the thumbnailer on a very limited set of freely available files. If you have some fb2 files containing a cover, but not supported by the thumbnailer, please tell me, I'll be glad to test them.

Great thanks! Thumbnailer works, but some files with more than one image inside (it's my guess, maybe because of other reason) are not show.

Thanks for feedback!
It should work with multi-images files (for example, http://fictionbook-lib.org/showbook.php?id=146). I would like to test this kind of fb2 files, do you know where I can find them?

Uhm, it lacks the "coverpage" tag, needed to identify the right cover image.
I'll try to select the first image available as cover for this kind of not-standard cases, but there is no way to be sure the first image is the right image (the cover).
Thanks!
