First of all, thank you for the beautiful budgie desktop. I am using it every day and like it a lot.

Bug report:
After updating budgie extras to version 1.0.1-1, the previews_creator showed an extremely high cpu usage (70-80%). The high cpu-usage was true even after 1 hour.
The previews were missing.

My budgie-desktop package has the version: 10.5.1+12+g10b814fa-1
I am using Xorg (xorg-server 1.20.8-1)

For reproduction, it is sufficient here to install budgie-extras.

Please don't hesitate to ask in case further information are helping.

Thank you, Daniel
This task depends upon

Could you open an issue in the upstream please? If you have already done it please let me know the link.

This is already fixed in upstream, and this package needs to be updated accordingly. It has been a long day, so I can't bother to pinpoint the exact commit.

I got the PKGBUILD and simply changed the pkgver from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2 and after compiling, installing and rebooting, the issue was fixed.
