How to disable generating previews of media files in Nautilus (GNOME), Fedora 10.

It would be the easiest to have gconf-editor installed.

By default, when you have this app installed, you can find it here:
Applications > System Tools > Configuration Editor

Go to:

There you can find every file type that has preview enabled. To disable all of them at once just check "disable_all" in the "thumbnailers" entry, or you can just find the media type you don't want to have preview generated (they are listed as a sub-directories of "thumbnailers") and uncheck "enable" key.
