Perhaps you installed shutter and its huge list of dependences and thought: “hey, I’m going to shot some captures to make my documentation more cool!” And what’s the bitter surprise when it doesn’t initialize.
Some windows appears saying something weird, like it cannot recognize some image formats…
Well, thanks to ericstone57, a user on AUR community, this can be easyly solved.
As root (not sudo but root), you must reload the loaders.cache
# cd /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf*/2*
# cp loaders.cache loaders.cache.old
# /usr/bin/gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > loaders.cache
Buy browsing the networks wondering why those commands, I found a site who reveals a nicer way to do the same by updating the cache of the pixbuf query loaders.
# gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache
