I was looking for this kind of script/extension. There's a problem though, it doesn't recognize .JPG files as images :(

Please put the output of the following command to see what happens:

$ file your_image_file.JPG

"file" is the command :)

It should work. Please install latest version from Github and try again. If problem persists, let me know again. What is your Linux distro?

Yes, I took a peek at the code, it should read the word 'image' if I remember correctly.

I'll try when I go home. BTW, I'm on ArchLinux with everything updated.

Tested in my ArchLinux virtual machine, which also is up to date, and it works fine. Good luck :)

Very good. Easy, without the need of command line (which I enjoy very much, but let's think about ordinary users).

I really appreciate your work.

Hey, you're welcome! From command line is so easy, no need of any front end, just use gsettings :)
