May I advise against abusing \n? This new string is quite difficult to
translate correctly:

The thumbnailer-service can not be reached,\nfor this reason, the
thumbnails can not be\ncreated.\n\nInstall <b>Tumbler</b> or another
<i>thumbnailing daemon</i>\nto resolve this issue.

Even if I put all the \n instances in their right places I'm not sure
how the text will look in Ristretto's error dialog because of
different font sizes and all... I'm not into GTK+ developing but there
should be a better way of formatting this error dialog and its text.
