Konqueror 3.5 not recognizing JPG’s

I noticed this evening that I wasn’t getting the usual thumbnails of jpg images in Konqueror (KDE’s file browser.) On investigation, there were error messages like this…. konqueror: WARNING: Pixmap not found for mimetype application/x-crossover-jpg being given. So, I looked in my home directory’s kde folder (.kde) and deeper in .kde/share/mimelnk/application There, I found a lot of x-crossover **.desktop files and deleted x-crossover-jpg.desktop We’ll see if that works on a logout/login. YES – that worked…. I should also note there are a lot of x-crossover file associations in that folder and if one conflicts, I suspect others may. The effect of this problem was that previews didn’t work in konqueror, neither did image recognition in a couple of kde related programs.


There are a few other related links here and here of people seeing similar issues. Both are forum/maillist posts.

Yes, I do have Crossover Office installed (version 5). There is, I’m sure an update, but I don’t know if it resolves that file association issue.
