Description:

The Keneric KDE (KF5) thumbnailer is a generic thumbnailer. It is intended to be used when there is no dedicated KDE thumbnailer and there is a fast and simple way to get the thumbnail image (oneliner).

The Keneric thumbnailer plugin is using a simple script to strip the thumbnail image from the file so the plugin can thumbnail the picture.

Included examples of:

* thumbnailing of .kra and .ora files
* thumbnailing of Blender files
* thumbnailing of Windows Metafiles

This is a great piece of code. It has helped smooth my transition from KDE 4 to KDE 5 I have already added code to create thumbnails for opendocument and openxml files.

One issue is the use of a single file name for the image temporary file.

I added a third parameter from the Qt library to the shell script that passes a unique file name (actually just appending the process id) which appears to have solved this problem. Might I suggest that such an addition be incorporated into any future release.

Thank you - an unique name is a good idea. Added to the todo list of the 0.3.
