Subject: gqview: does not display TGA and PGM files
Date: Tue, 7 Apr 2009 21:37:48 +0200
Package: gqview
Version: 2.0.4-5
Severity: normal

After an upgrade gqview fails to display TGA files without RLE
compression as well as PGM files. Instead of images, a "broken document
icon" is displayed. TGA with RLE compression are well shown.
Many other image viewers are also affected, thus, it may come from an
imaging library (?).

gqview has been replaced by geeqie now and I can not reproduce your
issue in it. If it still affects you, please reopen this bug with exact
steps how to reproduce it (best way would be to attach files which do
not work for you).
