[SOLVED] webp thumbnailer

as per the title i'm trying to get a webp thumbnailer working with pcmanfm.

i put the following inside ~/.local/share/thumbnailers/webp.thumbnailer

[Thumbnailer Entry]
Name=webp Thumbnailer
Exec=/usr/bin/convert %i -thumbnail %s %o

and it doesn't work

i even put this inside ~/.local/share/mime/image/webp.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mime-type xmlns="" type="image/webp">
  <!--Created automatically by update-mime-database. DO NOT EDIT!-->
  <comment>WebP file</comment>
  <icon name="image"/>
  <glob pattern="*.webp"/>

and nothing, webp images inside pcmanfm still show the generic image icon

i'm on pcmanfm 1.3.2-1 with tumbler 4.16.0-1 on devuan ceres.

nevermind, i figured it out, pcmanfm uses gdk-pixbuf for images and doesn't really query thumbler for that, so it needs a webp loader for gdk-pixbuf, i'm lazy and don't use any other software that depends on gdk-pixbuf for the images so i just switched to thunar.

no life matters, no life ever will, for existing is not something to be proud of but grateful, only achievements matter.
