I installed the new pillow 2.0 on windows 7 python 3.3 using one of the installers with no problems. Apparently that installer provides the jpeg support necessary for Vegaseat's program (link below).
However, I am having some kind of trouble getting the jpeg support to work on Ubuntu. After my installation, I have run the python3.3 selftest.py and it does indicate that JPEG support is OK. So, maybe I have muddled the install somehow that python 3.3 is not finding it.
So, I have this dilema:
"--- JPEG support ok" from selftest.py program
"builtins.OSError: decoder jpeg not available" when I run the program
python3.3 gives me the exception in the PIL program image.py _getdecoder where it reports the jpeg decoder is not available.
Any ideas what I can look at to understand this ?
My complete runtime error msg:
builtins.OSError: decoder jpeg not available
