dCore-stretch and JPEG image viewing
« on: November 21, 2016, 04:31:50 PM »
Upon using dCore-stretch I noticed there is no support for viewing JPEG images in any image viewer.  Debian has removed some libjpeg packges since Jessie.  The current libjpeg* packages available in Stretch seem not to support viewing JPEG images, and I have imported and tried them all.  I have uploaded a libjpeg-turbo8-stretch package to the prebuilt section which allows JPEG images to be viewed as in other dCore ports.  The source tarball is hosted here on our server.  This is a workaround, and as this is still fairly deep in the testing stage of Stretch, so I am sure a solution will be found before release.
