I installed gnome 2.8. Now I have the problem, that jpeg files are not
shown by nautilus. Clicking on them says "no appropriate application
installed" or something like that.

I searched the mail archives for nautilus, eog and gnome.
I have eog installed (2.8)
I have XDG_DATA_DIRS set to /usr/share + exported the Variable
I have gnome installed to /usr
Dragging and dropping jpeg files onto eog is not displaying anything.
I have reinstalled nautilus, eog, shared mime data with no success.

What could be the problem ? Hints ? FAQ ?
