I received a collection of animated GIF images from a friend, but I am unable to open some of them them with the standard image viewer
The error messages showing up when trying to open them include:
GIF image loader cannot understand this image
Circular table entry in GIF file
However, the images are not corrupt, because I can open them with Firefox without problems, also with the ImageMagick viewer, which does not play the animation automatically though.
Examining the GIFs with
file returns the output below, both for the images I can and cannot open (varying sizes though):
GIF image data, version 89a, 400 x 300
I want to be able to open all these images in
eog. Can I somehow "fix" the "broken" images to make them readable for the standard image viewer, e.g. by using ImageMagick's conversion abilities to turn them into something else and back?
