a little comment on that: EOG in ubuntu actually does not support any
RAW files at all. EOG relies on the gdk pixbuf loaders, and Ubuntu
does not ship the libopenraw loader. The reason why EOG *does* open
raw files because the CR2 mime type is registered as "sub-class-of"
TIFF. This has some strange consequences, for example you can open a
raw file in EOG by double clicking (because EOG is registered for
TIFF), but it will be ignored when you click the "next" button in EOG
(because EOG asks the pixbuf library whether the format is supported):
