    PNG files don't display in image viewer

    I've been having a problem where files with the .png extension won't display through nautilus. it's not all .pngs but most of them won't open. Is this a described problem and is there a fix?

    Try looking at the properties.
    right-Click on an image file.
    Go to properties
    Go to image.
    What does it say.

    I'm gonna guess it says jpeg.
    I've seen this where the extension and the image file's type don't match and the EOG(image viewer) says cannot display.
    Funny thing though, is if you simply remove the extension it will probably show.

    This is another thing which is not clear to me. Somewhere it's said that "Linux" does not rely on file extensions the way MS Windows does but then we have examples like this (and others).
