I have a series of
.jpg files that do not show on Ubuntu Image Viewer or as thumbnails. These are perfectly ok on Windows 32 and 64 and on Mac OS.
Strangely one very old
.jpg file does display correctly and its thumbnail is visible in Files no bother just these new ones.
After one hair pulling exercise found some which would not display on Windows were wrongly tagged as
.jpeg by extension removed all these. Now all are on a memory stick which works ok on Windows and Mac just not on Ubuntu.
Can anyone help? Please bear in mind this is only my third day with Linux installed for the first time.
Update: outcomes of some suggested fixes
Right click on a jpg files, select "open with another application" and try other suggested applications. Also try to open with a web browser like Firefox or Chrome.
Just tried opening with Firefox opens ok. Also tried imagemagik and shotwell all display the images no bother.
Copy one of the failing jpg files to another folder. Then right click on it and select rename and remove the .jpg part (i.e. change imagename.jpg to imagename). Then double click on it.
Just tried the last one and removed the extension i.e .jpg the thumbnail appeared immediately. Also works on simple double click.
