I am using Gnome 2.4 and keep getting the following error when trying to load any JPG file:
Loading of image BigBrother.jpg failed.
Reason: Unrecognized image file format.
However, I am able to load it using 'xloadimage' or analyse the files using 'jpeginfo' utility:
benko smee benko $ jpeginfo download/BigBrother.jpg
download/BigBrother.jpg 600 x 554 24bit JFIF N 97033
Also, I can convert the JPG file into PNG (using 'jpegtopnm' utility) and then open it without any problem in 'eog'.
The problem is only with JPG (JPEG) files, and I have not noticed any issues with other file types. I tried running 'eog' in a verbose/debug mode but could not found an option for it.
Annoyingly, this used to work (in my Gnome 2.2), which stopped working when I updated one of my applications (not sure which one). I suspect it has something to do with MIME types or something, but I cannot find out what. As a result the problem is in all Gnome applications that display JPG files (except mozilla and epiphany).
Any help is really appreciated. BTW, I am a Linux novice, so please bare that in mind when responding.
