EOG EXIF data not available

Asked by gozo-pavo on 2008-09-17

EXIF data is not seen in EOG 2.22.3 (hardy).

The Image Viewer Manual states that libexif must be installed. I have found no package libexif. apt-get was used to reinstall libexif12 (0.6.16-2.1) and the system was restarted. Still no-joy.

The Image Viewer Manual says to use View - "Image Information in Pane" or Ctrl-I to see EXIF - but for me "Image Information in Pane" does not show on View menu.

A jpeg image with known EXIF information is loaded when I try and inspect its EXIF data.

Any suggestions to enable EXIF view in EOG?

Thanks

My Bad

The images I was working with were ones which I had shrunk to prepare for Web viewing. The Software also removed the EXIF data.
