bash-3.00# eog Desktop/flight.jpg

(eog:1216): Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib

(eog:1216): Gdk-WARNING **: can not set locale modifiers

When doing the same for a png - file, the output is the same. 
I don´t think this error message is very useful ...?

At the moment I think something has gone wrong installing jpegsrc
libraries, but I installed them again with no error messages but no
success in displaying jpeg files in nautilus or eog.

is there a way to check if something is wrong with the libraries?
